TAMUNING, GU, May 25, 2012 – Democratic congressional candidate Karlo Dizon has issued a statement addressing Congresswoman Madeleine Z. Bordallo’s mismanagement of the Guam military buildup’s progress in Congress. The Congresswoman’s statement was released after it was announced that the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2013 is headed to the Senate.

“Our island’s future depends on how we manage this buildup, yet once again we are disappointed by the inability of the Delegate — our chief lobbyist in Washington — to move forward with key aspects of the project,” Dizon said. “The Congresswoman has said she is disappointed we have to submit DOD some reports. Let’s stop passing the blame and take charge. If Congress needs the reports, let’s get them done.”

According to a press release issued by Bordallo’s office on May 24, the Senate Armed Services Committee has completed the mark-up for its version of the FY13 NDAA. The full text of the bill has not been made public and the bill now heads to the full Senate for further consideration with
no date given.
