Guam - Transportation Committee chair senator Tom Ada will hold another informational briefing this week with the Port Authority. The hearing is expected to touch on the port's implementation plan that is currently under review by the Maritime Administration that will outline the way the Port will handle more than $50 million in Department of Defense funding for its modernization plan.
The committee also intends to get updates on the port's plans to borrow additional funding to upgrade its facilities and equipment in preparation for the military buildup and options to acquire additional cranes. The informational briefing will be held Tuesday at five in the evening at the Legislative Public Hearing Room.
