Bordallo: new timeline allows for progress
Guam - Guam Congressional Delegate Madeleine Bordallo says today's announcement demonstrates that both government's remain committed to the realigning of forces in the Pacific. The congresswoman commended the group for coming to the same conclusion that many in Congress and Guam came to many years ago with regards to the unrealistic 2014 timeline completion date.
She said, "I think the group has outlined a more responsible timeframe for achieving tangible progress for a Futenma Replacement Facility and movement of Marines to Guam. This more responsible timeline will help our local businesses better prepare to support the military buildup as well as minimize burdens to our local infrastructure."
