Committee okays Kilili wind energy amendment
Washington, D.C. – The House Natural Resources Committee agreed to amend a national energy bill today to include a feasibility study for offshore wind energy in the Marianas. Congressman Gregorio Kilili Camacho Sablan offered the amendment during the mark-up of H.R. 4239, the SECURE American Energy Act. If the study demonstrates that wind energy is a feasible alternative for electrical generation in the Marianas, the bill authorizes offshore leases to be offered. “I want to thank Chairman Rob Bishop for his co-sponsorship of my amendment,” Congress Sablan said. “Lowering the cost of electricity is important for businesses and family households in the Marianas, so we have to use every opportunity to find ways to do that.” The Sablan amendment instructs the Director of the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management to conduct the economic feasibility study and submit the results to Congress within 180 days of enactment of the SECURE Act.

Chairman Phil Roe, M.D. (R-Tennessee) acknowledged Sablan’s concern during the Committee meeting. “We have discussed in my office the issues that you are dealing with,” the Chairman said. “So, Mr. Sablan, I understand very well where you are coming from and the lack of services that you have. “You have my commitment to try to h

Saipan Tribune — WASHINGTON, D.C.—Delegate Gregorio Kilili C. Sablan (Ind-MP) issued the following statement yesterday in response to the introduction of a bill in the U.S. House of Representatives that would outlaw cockfighting in the Marianas and the other non-state areas of the U.S. “Whether to continue allowing cockfighting in the Marianas is a question best left to our local legislators to answer.   “Federal law already bars the interstate shipment of fighting cocks, which is a legitimate exercise of federal authority. But cockfighting that is strictly confined to the Marianas, [that] stays within our borders and involves no federal interests, should remain a matter for local decisionmakers. “I want to thank those in the Democratic caucus who consulted with me before deciding whether to cosponsor this bill, especially those who decided not to cosponsor as a result of our discussion. Because I know that animal fighting is hard to defend and understand in other parts o
