New law paves way for drone industry on Guam

Gov. Lou Leon Guerrero has signed two new laws that would expand the qualifying certificate program to include commercial drone and processing-distribution industries.

“This pandemic expresses the importance of diversifying our economic pillars by inviting new industries to consider investing in Guam, with the intent of creating new jobs, increasing our tax base, and spurring the economy,” said Sen. James Moylan, author of Bills 217-35 and 218-35, which were signed into Friday.
