On Friday, September 21, 2012, the Committee on Health and Human Services held a Public Hearing on Bill 506-31 (COR): An Act to adopt the proposed fee schedule for the Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse, which was introduced by Vice Speaker Benjamin Cruz.

The Public Hearing was attended by representatives from the Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse and presented their proposal on the fee schedule. The senators present at the hearing congratulated DMHSA for finally having the work and the documents needed to establish the fee schedule that will assist the department.

“I congratulate DMHSA for finally coming through on this proposal and that we can finally move forward with the fee schedules. In this regard, I ask that the department also focus on the billing statements and procedures as these two work in parallel. This effort has been pursued for a very long time, and I look forward to seeing the improvement and benefits this legislation will have to DMHSA,” stated Senator Rodriguez. 

Yesterday, September 19, 2012, the Guam Young Professionals hosted a senatorial forum for the incumbent candidates in hope to gain knowledge of who the candidates are, their platform, as well as their priorities if elected for the 32nd Guam Legislature. The incumbents were each given three (3) minutes to state their platform and why the community should vote for them. Also, they were asked a number of questions from the Guam Young Professionals related to various issues prevalent to Guam such as the military build up, legalizing gambling, and part-time legislature.
