PNC :: Senator Webb to Meet with Senators
Monday, 15 February 2010
Guam - Senator Webb will meet with local lawmakers Thursday morning at 11am.
Speaker Judi Wonpat sent a request to the senator who is coming to Guam from Japan. Webb is visiting this region mostly because of the U.S./Japan defense realignment agreement that will bring 8,000 marines and their dependents to Guam from Okinawa. Speaker Judi Wonpat says she hopes that Webb will have enough time to listen to all of the senators' concerns.
The speaker says it is important to meet with U.S. Senators about Guam's financial needs as a result of the military buildup because they are the ones who hold the purse strings.
