The Mariana Islands Legislature Association will convene on Guam from July 11 to July 12 for its second general assembly. 

They plan to discuss transportation, labor, food security, regional security, border security, and healthcare.

“...I wish MILA lots of energy and strong will to identify every urgent issue that our islands want the national government to hear and bring them to the table to work with us in accomplishing adjustments that we confidently believe would move us forward,” CNMI Gov. Arnold Palacios said in a statement.

Guam Gov. Lou Leon Guerrero said, “Let’s roll up our sleeves, engage in fruitful conversations, and forge bonds that will carry us forward in unity.”

In February, Northern Marianas Senate and House lawmakers were on Guam to meet with the legislature and other officials amid discussions of reviving the regional body.
