Republican senators getting impatient with the administration's silence on post-Covid economic plan
With the coronavirus appearing to be under control and Guam seemingly headed to normalcy, what do we expect next?
In the absence of a clear post-Covid recovery plan from the administration, Republican senators are getting impatient.
"The question now becomes, what is your administration’s plan and timelines to expand the opening of the island for economic growth and opportunities?" four Republicans asked in a letter to Gov. Lou Leon Guerrero.
The government has eased more pandemic-related restrictions, allowing bigger crowds at business establishments. Gearing up for the slow reopening of tourism, the governor has issued a new executive order expanding the quarantine exemptions for incoming travelers.
The latest directive allows travelers vaccinated with AstraZeneca to enter the island and skip the quarantine requirement.
"While we understand that business activity was never completely shut down through the pandemic, there were, and continue to be limitations. We are not here to challenge the reasons for these actions, rather we would like to obtain a better grasp of what happens next," reads the letter signed by Sens. James Moylan, Frank Blas Jr,., Tony Ada and Chris Duenas.
