Guam - It was earlier this month when Senator Michael San Nicolas introduced Bill 148 that would allow the government to absorb the merchant services costs in order to facilitate online transactions.

And while that measure has yet to have a public hearing, he already plans to introduce a companion bill with the hope of increasing more online transactions.

He said, "So this next bill that we're working on is going to require that all of our agencies throughout our government review all of their transactions that they charge to the community and determine or not those transactions can be placed online."

San Nicolas says the measure would require the agencies to determine what transactions are plausible and implausible. He says should there be any implausible transactions that perhaps senators can work on policy adjustment to make changes. He plans to introduce this companion bill later this month.
