Lee takes first legislative trip of the year to meet with feds

Posted: Updated:

Legislative Federal Affairs Chair Sen. Regine Biscoe is in the nation's capital on the 35th Legislature's first official off-island trip.

Lee is in Washington, D.C. to meet federal partners on issues relative to H-2Bs, migrant health insurance, and veterans issues.

She provided an itinerary in a release to media saying if we, "want DC's doors to open, we all need to knock."

Lee said she will meet with officials from Department of Interior and the Center for Minority to discuss among other things opening a DOI satellite office on Guam and a request for an updated DOI report on the impact of a lack of foreign labor for civilian trips.

Lee's 10-day trip will cost taxpayers $3,021 in airfare and per diem. As a comparison, the 34th Guam legislature's Federal Affairs chair - current Washington Delegate and former Sen. Mike San Nicolas - took a similar trip, which cost taxpayers over $8,000.
