In the first Legislative Session of 2016, three of Sen. Rodriguez's Bills were debated and voted on, making it a step closer to helping address several community issues.
The 3 Bills were to address community flooding, the Natasha Protection Act and Social Work Licensure.
Bill 136-33 is an act to address flooding in several community areas by using appropriated funds from the FY14 Guam Highway Fund. This measure passed with 9 yea votes.
Bill 143-33 is an act to strengthen the Natasha Protection Act by adding increased enforcement and training. The Bill passed unanimously.
