Kilili: $3.8M for airport bridgeways
Saipan Tribune — WASHINGTON, D.C.—The Commonwealth Ports Authority would be receiving $3.8 million to replace three passenger loading bridges at the Francisco C. Ada/Saipan International Airport, according to Delegate Gregorio Kilili C. Sablan (Ind-MP) yesterday. Congress will provide the funding through the Airport Improvement Program administered by the Federal Aviation Administration. “Improving the visitor arrival experience is a priority for the Marianas tourist industry,” Sablan said. “So, continuing robust funding for our airport facilities is a priority for me in Congress.” The Airport Improvement Program provides about $3.2 billion annually for runways and taxiways and other capital projects at over 3,300 airports nationwide. The funds are distributed from the Airport and Airway Trust Fund that is due for reauthorization by Congress by the end of fiscal year 2017. The trust fund is based mainly on a 7.5 percent tax paid on airline ticket purchases. “Withou
House OKs Kilili’s anti-trafficking bill
Saipan Tribune — WASHINGTON, D.C.—Delegate Gregorio Kilili C. Sablan (Ind-MP) led the Democratic side of the aisle yesterday during debate on a bill he jointly introduced with Rep. Tim Walberg (R-Michigan) aimed at preventing human trafficking. The Enhancing Detection of Human Trafficking Act, H.R. 2664, “ensures the Department of Labor can effectively train its employees to spot the illegal trade of people—and respond quickly and effectively when cases are detected,” in the words of House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wisconsin). Ryan featured the bill on his website. The House passed H.R. 2664 and two other bipartisan bills yesterday, all aimed at preventing human trafficking. Sablan expressed his appreciation to Walberg, who is chairman of the Subcommittee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions, where Sablan serves as ranking member for the Democrats. “Mr. Wahlberg and I have found common ground on a number of important issues facing the American people, and human trafficking

Saipan Tribune — NEW YORK, NY—Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, the leading post-9/11 veterans empowerment organization, applauds Delegate Gregorio Kilili C. Sablan (Ind-MP) for co-sponsoring the Deborah Sampson Act (HR 2452) to fully recognize and support women veterans. In addition to changing the VA’s non-inclusive motto, the Deborah Sampson Act aims to fill critical gaps in VA care for women veterans, including funding peer-to-peer assistance and improve legal and support services, data tracking and reporting and newborn medical care. “IAVA’s over 425,000 IAVA members nationwide and especially those in the Northern Mariana Islands want to thank [Sablan] for stepping up to support women veterans at this critical time. His leadership on the Deborah Sampson Act will add a tremendous boost to our efforts. In IAVA’s most recent member survey, only 27 percent of women veteran respondents felt that the American public respects their service,” said Paul Rieckhoff, C
Kilili: $4.5M more for Soudelor recovery
Saipan Tribune — WASHINGTON, D.C.—Delegate Gregorio Kilili C. Sablan (Ind-MP) announced yesterday that the Commonwealth is receiving $4,518,008 more in federal funds as part of the Typhoon Soudelor recovery effort. The money will be used to install 12 generators to provide emergency back-up power to 91 wells and keep water service available to all villages on Saipan after a storm. “Congress provides these hazard mitigation grants to areas that have suffered through natural disasters in order to harden public infrastructure and make it more resilient in the event of future disasters,” Sablan said. “One of the worst effects of a storm like Soudelor is that people do not have water for cooking and cleaning and the basic needs of life. The funding now available will help ensure that the Commonwealth Utilities Corp. is more able to keep delivering water even after a terrible storm.” According to details of the grant agreement from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, two
