Bordallo, Navy to discuss EIS extension
by Heather Hauswirth
Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo will meet with U.S. Navy Secretary Ray Mabus on Thursday (Guam time) to discuss an extension request for the comment period on the Comprehensive Draft Environmental Impact Statement for the military buildup. Bordallo is hoping to convince the Navy to reevaluate its decision to only allow 45 days for public review and comment of the DEIS.
Bordallo noted that less comprehensive studies like the Mariana Islands Range Complex were allowed longer comment periods.
