Guam Legislature launches military buildup database

Speaker Tina Muna Barnes

The 35th Guam Legislature has launched a database for the military buildup on Guam courtesy of Speaker Tina Muna-Barnes who also chairs the legislative buildup committee.

The database seeks to document the military buildup on Guam and allow for a single repository that will have all information relevant to the buildup.

According to the Speaker’s office, the Legislature’s buildup committee has been working diligently with Joint Region Marianas as well as Marine Corps Activity Guam to compile documents pertaining to the buildup.

Already available in the database are the Programmatic Agreement Memos for two projects on Andersen Air Force Base. P-103 for new well fields for water and J-755 covering the Urban Combat Training Area at Andersen South are now available on the Guam Legislature’s website. The comment period for both proposed actions will be open until Oct. 9, 2019.

“I understand that in one way or another the buildup affects everyone that calls Guam home, and it is my intention that our people be provided the relevant information. I further encourage all our residents to take the time to review the documents and provide their input. My door is always open, and I will continue to do my due diligence to facilitate this discussion which I believe will impact our island for generations to come,” the Speaker said in a release.

Other documents pertaining to the buildup will be added to the database shortly. The database can be found under the Directories tab on the 35th Guam Legislature’s website or at
