Guam - Just as lawmakers adjourned regular session Tuesday morning, Governor Eddie Calvo has introduced legislation to pay law enforcement overtime. The bill would appropriate $4 million from the unappropriated,  unallocated fund balance of the Tourist Attraction Fund and from the surplus balance of the 2007 General Obligation Bond Series A. The bill not only allocates $1.5 million to the Guam Police Department for payment of overtime costs including prior years, but $1 million for the Department of Corrections and $1.5 million for the Guam Fire Department. 

The further amends a Public Law 32-168, signed over the summer, that removes the limitation of using funds only for the payment for prior years overtime so that the balance remaining can be used to pay both prior AND current year overtime obligations. In a release over the weekend, Governor Calvo stated he would be calling lawmakers into special session to address legislation on prior year overtime payments for GPD. According to Speaker Judi Won Pat's Office, session on the Governor's Bill will be called today at 2pm.
