Rodriguez urges Gov to hold off GMH meeting
Guam - Healthcare Committee chairman Senator Dennis Rodriguez, Jr. is urging Governor Eddie Calvo to rethink his decision to move forward with Thursday's Guam Memorial Hospital board of trustees meeting. The governor in an interview with KUAM News Monday said despite concerns and possible legal action by the legislature, the meeting will go on as scheduled.
"There has been talk of some legal challenges of that whole exercise if its carried out also if you have a group of individuals considered a board of trustees that are not confirmed by the legislature I think the concerns there would be you would be giving them some private confidential information that would be given to a dully confirmed board of trustees so I think its best to postpone that," he said.
The board meeting is scheduled for Thursday, while the confirmation hearing for the governor's appointees is scheduled for Friday evening. Senator Rodriguez hopes the legislature will confirm the appointees in a special session before May.
