Hagåtña, Guam – Governor Lou Leon Guerrero issues the following statement on the Senate’s passage of the nearly $1.4 trillion spending bill which includes a provision for $127 million in Medicaid funding for Guam.
“Today, Democrats and Republicans in Congress put national partisanship aside to help millions of people they have never met. This work took the combined effort of many but that work isn’t done. While we are grateful for this temporary fix, we must work toward a lasting solution. Guam joins our fellow territories in the important work ahead.”
The measure is now headed to the President who is expected to sign it into law.
