When the Guam Farmer's Market in Dededo opens in a couple of weeks, there will be a name on the building synonymous with a champion.

Sen. Rodriguez introduced Bill 203-33(COR) on October 30 to name the Guam Farmer's Market the "vicente (ben) c. pangelinan Farmer's Market - I Metkaon Lancheron I Taotato or the People's Farmer's Market."

During the public hearing on the Bill, great support was received in testimony from many individuals who supported farmers and the late Speaker.  It was suggested that another name be referenced in Chamorro to ensure the renaming was accurate. 

After much deliberation and research, the final proposal was made to enhance the renaming and ultimately became the "The Speaker vicente (ben) c. pangelinan Guam Farmers Market: Sagan Lina'la I Manaotao Tano' (The Place of the Life of the People of the Land)."

"Speaker Ben was a true champion of the people. He worked hard to ensure the Guam Farmer's Cooperative had the land and assistance to build this long-awaited farmer's market.  During his public service, Speaker Ben never failed to recognize and support the work each man, woman and child did for the family and island community.  He continually fought for the rights of landowners, farmers, fishermen, and indigenous rights, making him their champion.  This is a wonderful way to remember Speaker Ben's contributions to our island community," Sen. Rodriguez stated.

The bill passed with 14 yea votes and 1 excused absence.  It now awaits the Governor's action to pass or veto.

 

In a week long Legislative Session, one of the Legislative Bills introduced by Sen. Rodriguez, Bill 133-33 (COR) was debated on the legislative floor during the November session last week.

Bill 133-33's intent was to authorize Guam's commissioned Notary Public's to perform their notarial acts in a foreign country for legal documents to be used on Guam.

After much debate and deliberation, the Guam Legislature passed the bill with 9 yeas, 5 nays and 1 excused absence.

This bill will provide added economic development in allowing Guam's Notary Publics to provide a service to investors from foreign countries in their real estate transactions. All documents notarized must be filed with the Department of Land Management.

The Bill has been transmitted to the Governor's office for his review and hopeful enactment.
