8 bills signed into law

Gov. Lou Leon Guerrero has signed eight bills into law:

• Bill 13-35 – Sen. Amanda Shelton – Protects elderly and disabled individuals from financial exploitation. It is now Public Law 35-50.

"Public Law 35-50, protects our manåmko' and individuals with disabilities from financial exploitation, which is on the rise on Guam. Care for the manåmko' is engrained in our culture and everyone deserves a life of dignity and respect. If you or someone you know may be the victim of elder financial exploitation you can call Adult Protective Services at 735-7382. There is support available for caretakers as well," Shelton sad.

• Bill 40-35 – Sen. Telo Taitague – Establishes the Alcoholic Beverage Compliance Fees and Fines Fund. It is now Public Law 35-53.

“Bill 40 finally establishes the Alcoholic Beverage Compliance Fees and Fines Fund in law as a separate revenue fund – ensuring that proceeds will help promote responsible drinking and driving practices, youth programs, and public service and education activities. I thank my colleagues for spending the time necessary during our recent session to question officials on the reasons for delaying proper implementation of the ABC Fees and Fines Fund despite it being referenced in two other laws passed during the 31st and 32nd legislatures.,” Taitague said.
