The Minimum Wage Bill Is NOT on Monday’s Session Agenda


Guam – Vice-Speaker B.J. Cruz opted not to place the controversial minimum wage bill onto this session agenda which has been called for 9a.m. on Monday.

Instead he only offerred the nomination of Michelle Taitano to the parole board. 

The committee on rules held a meeting this afternoon to determine what bills to place on the upcoming session agenda. Committee on rules Chairman Rory Respicio says that the Vice-Speaker will still have the option to place the bill on the next sessions agenda.

Cruz asked Respicio to hold the committee record open for ten days in order to receive additional public comment or testimony.

Some of the bills that made it onto the agenda include Bill 297 which would require that any cattle imported into Guam pass various tests by veterinarians, Bill 131 which would give DPW the authority to set speed limits, and Bill 227 which would create the Guam Streetlight Authority and allow it to issue bonds to pay for the installation of LED streetlights.
