If this case is strong, we should have it move forward on a contingency basis without spending public funds to do all the legwork for a private firm,” San Nicolas said."

"Bill 403 recognizes a serious need to support workforce training and assessment programs such as WorkKeys – especially in today’s highly competitive job market,” Yamashita said. “This legislation builds upon the good work GCC, our mayors, and the Guam Chamber of Commerce have done to help residents earn a decent wage to support themselves and their families.”"
"We have struggled with the suspension of trash pickup, custodial services and juggled utility disconnection notices,” he said. “Vendors have also refused to do business with the department due to outstanding invoices."
