Guam - Vice-Speaker BJ Cruz issued a report on Bill 66, a measure he authored that calls for a special election to determine whether residents support the military buildup and the leasing of lands administered by the Ancestral Lands Commission and the Chamorro Land Trust Commission to accommodate the buildup.
According to a release from Cruz's office, he says with the release of the Draft Environmental Impact Statement, the public is now informed to vote on the issue. He says the need for a vote includes reasons such as the increase in population beyond initial projects and the drain in resources.
