More food aid for the Marianas
Governor Ralph Torres and I held a joint press conference to mark the rollout of the Enhanced Nutrition Assistance Program (E-NAP) for the Northern Mariana Islands. The new E-NAP means that beginning this month, more families will receive increased food assistance made possible by the $30.5 million I secured for the Northern Marianas in the 2014 Farm Bill. Congratulations to Governor Torres, Community and Cultural Affairs Secretary Robert Hunter, and NAP Administrator Walter Macaranas (pictured above, left to right) and the NAP team for their success in developing the new program and expenditure plan for those additional funds, and for obtaining approval from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food and Nutrition Service in May.

In this issue: More food aid for the Marianas Casino contractors face OSHA fines Fallen heroes remembered Honoring WWII casualties Welcome, Mr. Shinoda OPPORTUNITIES LEGISLATIVE HIGHLIGHTS ____________________________________________________________________________ Casino contractors face OSHA penalties On Thursday, the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) announced proposed penalties totaling $193,750 against three Saipan casino construction companies for numerous workplace hazards. These are some of the largest penalties OSHA has issued this year, underscoring the seriousness of the violations found at the Imperial Pacific Resort construction site.

Kilili: block “bad actors” from CW program
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Gregorio Kilili Camacho Sablan wants the Department of Homeland Security to make companies that violate employment laws ineligible to participate in the CW, foreign worker, program. “Companies that do not pay their workers what they are owed, companies that ignore federal safety standards in the workplace, should not have the privilege of using the CW program,” Congressman Sablan said. “We have too many legitimate businesses—and even public institutions like the hospital—that still need foreign workers and find it increasingly difficult to get CW permits. “Legitimate local businesses should not have to compete with the ‘bad actors,’ who break the law.” Sablan has already communicated his position to Homeland Security Secretary John F. Kelley. And this week the Congressman followed up by transmitting the citations and notifications of penalties just issued by the Occupation Safety and Health Administration of the U.S. Department of Labo

Since information about illegal labor and immigration practices by certain companies first came to my attention months ago, my administration has been working with the U.S. Department of Labor to go after these employers who have not followed the laws and regulations,” he said. “We do not tolerate these practices and will continue this dialogue with our federal partners for a more efficient crack
