Guam - Next month Governor Eddie Calvo will be in the nation's capital where he plans to meet with several government officials. During the Guam Chamber of Commerce meeting earlier this week, Governor Calvo announced that while he's attending the National Governor's Association meeting on February 18, he hopes to meet with the Obama Administration, the House of Representatives, Armed Services Committee and Arizona senator John McCain.

"I think it's important because now with Senator McCain at the helm of the US Senate Armed Services Committee, it's important for us to even work harder to meet with him to discuss the issues that are important to the military buildup," Calvo said.

He adds during this timeframe, the Office of Economic Adjustment should have released its report to the Defense Department to Congress on the impacts of mitigating requirements for the buildup. Calvo says he believes the costs for mitigation to be around $330 million. He further hopes to discuss issues related to mandates by the federal government and costs it has on the island.
