Guam - Senator Jim Webb's visit to Guam and Japan comes just in time as lawmakers head into session tomorrow to discuss Resolution 275. The measure would express to Congress the sentiments of island residents' on the Draft Environmental Impact Statement.

Lawmakers held a series of interactive town meetings on the Draft EIS allowing residents to call or come in and testify on the document. Lawmakers have been compiling all the feedback they received to present to congress. Senator Rory Respicio said, "That resolution is going to be the basis as to how we can establish some kind of common ground and how we're going address this buildup. And common ground include that the military has to live within its own footprint and fund this buildup, they cannot impact our culture and our environment.

Session is scheduled to get underway tomorrow at two o'clock in the afternoon.
