Guam - A public hearing is set for later this week on legislation once again trying to rescind the pay raises for elected leaders and political appointees. Senator Michael San Nicolas introduced Bill 4 to repeal Public Law 32-208 enacted late last year. Along with the bill, Resolution 3 will be heard which requests for Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo to introduce legislation in congress to amend the Organic Act prohibiting elected officials from enacting pay raises until an election has intervened. As you recall, the bill was introduced, passed by lawmakers and signed by then-Acting Governor Ray Tenorio within three weeks after the general election. The public hearing is set for Thursday January 22 at 6pm at the Guam Legislature.
