National Committeeman for the Guam GOP Juan Carlos Benitz talks HR 1365 with Andrea Pellacani
Written by Paul Charfauros on February 14, 2020
In Washington D.C. on Wednesday night, the U.S. Senate passed Guam Delegate Michael San Nicolas’ war claims correction bill, H.R. 1365. The bill was passed by unanimous consent, without objection.
However, because the Senate added a minor technical amendment to the bill, H.R. 1365 must go back to the U.S. House for approval. Then it heads to the White House for President Trump’s signature in order to become law.
H.R. 1365 adds a provision correcting what former delegate Madeleine Bordallo and her staff left out of her World War Two Loyalty Recognition Act. The provision allows the U.S. Treasury Department to actually issue payments to the survivors of the Japanese occupation during World War II.
