Guam - Aside from being sworn in the 31st Guam Legislature adopted its new Standing Rules, which evidently reflects clarification of previous rules, and for the rules of procedure for the Committee on Ethics and Standards. Those changes including closing the committee's meetings off to the public unless the respondent requests that they be held in public.

According to Senator Rory Respicio changes to the rules were done to uphold the legislature's integrity as a whole, while ensuring the protection of personal privacies, both for senators and employees.
