Guam – Senator Nerissa Underwood is donating $74,000 in unspent office budget savings to buy almost 100 desks.

 

According to Underwood the donated funds are appropriated lapsed funds from fiscal year’s 2015 and 2016. In both instances, the funds were a result of “cost cutting measures” within the senator’s office. She says she saved $40,000 from FY15 and $34,000 in FY16.

“I used those unspent funds to appropriate it for the Department of Education, so when I contacted GDOE, they said its really timely because Simon Sanchez High School is in need of new desks,” said Underwood.
