Governor restores funding to Guam Preservation Trust
September 14, 2012
The Governor’s vision of a redeveloped Hagatna comes another step closer to reality today. Moments ago he restored the funding to the Guam Preservation Trust that will be used to reconstruct the historic Guam Congress Building.
I promised the legislature I would push this through, and I’m making good on my promise,” Governor Calvo said. “But this is so much more important than the construction of a building. This is yet another step forward in our efforts to build a capital city we can all be proud of.”
This money originally was held by Guam Preservation Trust until the cash was spent elsewhere during the Gutierrez administration. Governor Calvo, himself a former senator, promised legislators he would restore the money.
The re-opening of the Guam Congress Building will mean the legislature will be able to move back to its historic home. This will have the effect of significantly reducing the amount of money senators use for office rental space each year.
