Sablan wants prompt renewal of Palau Compact


Congressman Gregorio Kilili Camacho Sablan quizzed administration witnessestoday on a proposed 15-year renewal of the Palau Compact of Free Association with the United States. He called for a greater sense of urgency on approval of the overdue agreement and a sense of perspective with respect to the cost of the renewal.“”We are nickel and dimeing Palau,” Sablan said of the reluctance to find acceptable funding to continue the Compact with Palau for another 15 years. The proposed agreement cuts funding from the first 15-year total by 62 percent.Sablan compared the situation to ...

Students win in FY17 spending act
The House of Representatives approved on Wednesday and the Senate on Thursday H.R. 244, the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2017 to fund the federal government through September 30, 2017. The $1.07 trillion appropriation is expected to be signed by the President shortly. The spending agreement provides vital funding increases for many programs important to the Northern Mariana Islands. Some highlights: Northern Marianas schools will receive an extra $4 million in new money in school year 2017-18, as a result of the funding formula change I included in the Every Student Succeeds Act in the last Congress. My new island schools formula was the only change allowed in the low-income student funding program nationwide and is triggered by the FY17 spending bill. The new formula now continues year after year. Low-income college students also benefit through increased Pell grants. The maximum goes up to $5,920 for the 2017-18 school year. Summer Pell will also be reinstated, provid
DoD funds Tinian harbor study
The U.S. Department of Defense has contributed $586,000 to the Commonwealth to use as the local match requirement for an on-going study of Tinian harbor needs. The three-year assessment of the harbor by the Army Corps of Engineers is planned to cost $3 million. I obtained federal funding for the project in December 2015 in Public Law 114-113. And I was able to lower the local share for this Army Corps work on Tinian and anywhere else in the Marianas in the Water Resources Reform and Development Act of 2014. The Commonwealth paid its reduced share of $384,000 in FY16 and this week’s federal grant of $586,000—$338,000 for FY17 and $248,000 for FY18—completes the local requirement.
Medicare for All: the real solution
Amid the drama this week on repealing and replacing Obamacare, I have joined 108 other Members of the House as a cosponsor of the real solution to our nation’s health care dilemma: Medicare for All. Unlike both Obamacare and the Republican replacement passed on Thursday, Medicare for All, H.R. 676, covers residents of the Mariana Islands in exactly the same way as Americans living anywhere in our country. By expanding the existing federal Medicare insurance program, which 2,219 Marianas residents already use, Medicare for All would provide the full range of healthcare to everyone who needs it. The program would be paid for in the same way as Medicare with a progressive excise tax on payroll income and by pooling existing federal expenditures for health care, such as Medicare, Medicaid, and the Children’s Health Insurance Program, into a single system. This would save the Commonwealth millions of dollars in local matching funds now required by Medicaid and ensure that our hospital
