Hagåtña, Guam – Governor Lou Leon Guerrero issues the following statement in response to the bipartisan introduction of Bill No. 130-36 (LS):

“I support Vice Speaker Barnes’ bipartisan effort to fully recognize the pain and sacrifice of Guam’s Greatest Generation. We know that at least 700 of our people missed the war claims deadline through no fault of their own–and now is the time to heal these longstanding wounds. Under this measure, we can pay those who have been disenfranchised in months, not years,” said Governor Leon Guerrero. “As the measure moves forward, I will ask that we specifically identify the use of Section 30 funds for this purpose. Doing this will ensure, with absolute clarity, that we turn the page on this painful part of our history. I want to thank Vice Speaker Barnes and Senator Moylan for their hard work and willingness to work collaboratively.”
