Guam - He's not seeking re-election but Senator Michael Limtiaco is keeping to his commitment to reduce spending and right-size government. This week he introduced Bill 411 that would transfer $75,000 saved from his operational budget and appropriate those funds to the Guam Memorial Hospital.

He told KUAM News, "We were able to save that money by staffing at the minimalist level as well as using that recycling mantra, reduce, reuse recycle, so Charlie and I went to GSA and scrounged for office equipment, we looked for in the private sector for donations, so we were able to reduce the amount of money that we spent in our office and subsequently appropriate it to GMH."

The bill is designed to provide for one cryostat, two bipap systems and 10 infusion pumps. Limtiaco encourages other senators who have savings in their operational budget to use it for priority areas in the government.
