Limtiaco Bill to transfer $75K from lapsed budget to GMH

Guam - Legislation has been introduced to transfer money to fund improvements for the Guam Memorial Hospital. Senator Michael Limtiaco introduced Bill 411 today that would de-appropriate $75,000 from the sums appropriated to the Legislature for his operational budget and re-appropriate those funds to GMH. The bill is designed to provide for one cryostat, two BiPAP systems and 10 infusion pumps.

In a release Limtiaco says the bill falls in line with his priority to reduce governmental spending and right-sizing government. He says “What has been seen in the past are outgoing senators transferring their lapsed budgets to incoming or even sitting senators.  I feel those lapsed budgets could be better used in areas that are needed the most and so my office has found that GMH is in need of specific upgrades.”

Limtiaco is not seeking re-election.
