Kilili proposes extending terms of insular federal court judges
Marianas Variety— U.S. Congressman Gregorio Kilili Camacho Sablan has introduced legislation to extend the term of office for U.S. District Court judges in insular areas from 10 to 15 years. The “U.S. Territorial Federal Judges Improvement Act of 2015” is co-sponsored by U.S. Congresswomen Madeleine Bordallo, D-Guam, and Stacey Plaskett, D-U.S. Virgin Islands. “Judges are expected to interpret the law and hand down their decisions without fear or favor, and regardless of public criticism or reprisal from the elected branches,” Congressman Sablan said. “Longer terms are conducive to this standard of justice.” Sablan also is seeking the extended term to put the insular judges on a similar footing as other U.S. judges. “The fifteen years I am proposing for our insular U.S. District Court judges is the same term as other legislatively-established court judges, such as those of the U.S. Tax Court and Court of Federal Claims,” Sablan added. The U.S. Territorial Federal Judg
Disaster unemployment assistance now available
FEMA announced this week that unemployment assistance will be available for workers who lost their jobs and for self-employed individuals who have been unable to work due to Typhoon Soudelor.  FEMA officials initially said that they could not extend the assistance because the Commonwealth does not have an unemployment insurance law or state agency. But Congress authorized these benefits in the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Relief Act and your congressional office requested that FEMA reconsider. The unemployment assistance will now be provided using Hawai’i’s Employment Security Law per 20 CFR Part 625. Individuals must file applications by October 19, 2015 in person at the Workforce Investment Agency office, Building 1215 on Capitol Hill, Saipan. Application forms are available online and at the WIA office.
