Guam - It may have made its way through the Legislature in rapid fashion, but for now it's going to take more time for the governor and his team to review. The legislation was passed with no public hearing and within about 48 hours of its introduction. As we reported it not only tweaked local law to conform with USDOE's extension for DOE to obligate ARRA funding, but also re-appropriated $3 million that was supposed to go to mental health for its permanent injunction and gave it to GCC and UOG.

Bill 516 was introduced by Senator Ben Pangelinan and Speaker Judi Won Pat.
