Nelson calls E911 Homeland Committee hearing

Sen. Telena Cruz Nelson (D) of the 34th Guam Legislature. Nelson is running for reelection this Nov. 6th.

Guam – Sen. Telena Nelson is attempting to refine and define the law this week. Her Committee on Housing, Utilities, Public Safety, and Homeland Security convenes for a public hearing at the Guam Congress Building in Hagatna on Thursday morning.

The agenda includes an act relative to the “911” surcharge  and enhanced 911 emergency reporting system fund and would create criminal liabilities for violations.

The  Calvo Administration came under fire during FY-19 budget hearings when Acting Fire Chief Joey San Nicolas admitted to allowing the E-911 special lockbox fund to be raided for other expenditure purposes, despite local and federal laws barring transfer.

Sen. Nelson’s committee also plans to vet her legislation aimed at mandating qualification requirements of the directors of both the Customs and Quarantine Agency and the Dept. of Corrections.
