Community Center, Budgetary Transparency, Victims’ Rights Now Law
Calvo Holds First Bill Signing Ceremony of Term
Immediate Release: January 20, 2011
History was made today, as Governor Eddie Baza Calvo signed his first bills into law.
“These laws deal with community service, transparency, and advocacy for victims―three causes very important to me,” Governor Calvo said.
The three bills signed are:

  • Bill No. 381 is now Public Law 30-236. It mandates employers to grant reasonable leave to victims of domestic violence for court proceedings and medical treatment.
  • Bill No. 445 is now Public Law 30-237. It mandates government agencies to post their budget submissions to the Legislature on their respective websites.
  • Bill No. 471 is now Public Law 30-238. It rezones land in Dededo, allowing for the construction of a multi-purpose community center. The Ilocano Association of Guam and the Guam Housing and Urban Renewal Authority partnered up to build the center with an $800,000 federal grant.

Senators Tina Muña-Barnes and Adolpho Palacios attended the ceremony, along with former Senator Telo Taitague. Governor Calvo entered into office with four bills his predecessor did not act on. The Governor will act on one more this afternoon, at 2 p.m. in the Bordallo Governor’s Complex.
