Cruz to Gov-elect: Commission on Fiscal Responsibility Needed


Guam – Vice Speaker Benjamin J.F. Cruz  is calling on Governor-elect Calvo to create a Commission on Fiscal Responsibility to address the challenges of the Government of Guam deficit.

In a release, Calvo argues that a bipartisan Commission on Fiscal Responsibility will be able to gauge the true pulse of Guam’s fiscal strength, promote transparency in government spending, and work toward the realization of the plans stated in the Blueprint which commits to “fiscal responsibility”.

Cruz’s suggestion comes as Governor-elect Calvo is in Colorado meeting with the nation’s new governors. The focus of the governor’s meeting is on the nationwide budget crisis and best practices in fiscal management.
