Guam - Vice Speaker B.J. Cruz has written Governor Eddie Calvo regarding the Navy's proposed 40% rate hike. Cruz is seeking support in either pursuing the integration of the island's water systems or release of the monies that would have otherwise been remitted for the cash purchase of the Fena Reservoir. Specifically he's referring to the $300 million owed in Compact impact reimbursement which in federal law allows for its use for the cash purchase of Fena.

The vice speaker says if the federal government cannot come to an agreement in integrating the water systems, he is asking for the governor's public support of a legislative proposal authorizing litigation to obtain the $300 million owed to the people of Guam.
