In mourning over gun violence
At the Capitol and in the Northern Marianas, flags were at half-staff this week in mourning for the 49 killed and scores wounded in Orlando, Florida — the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history. These events have become horribly commonplace in our country. And now that the federal court has confirmed that the Second Amendment limits our local ability to regulate firearms in the Northern Mariana Islands it becomes essential to join the effort in Congress to close loopholes that allow dangerous individuals to acquire guns. I have asked Rep. Peter King (R-New York) to add me as a cosponsor to his bill, H.R. 1076, Denying Firearms and Explosives to Dangerous Terrorists Act. It gives the U.S. Attorney General discretionary authority to prevent suspected terrorists from buying lethal weapons. Congress has a moral responsibility to do more than lower the flags and hold moments of silence for the victims of gun violence. We must also take action to prevent the next tragedy and keep guns out
Kilili: No easy answer on CW crisis
Saipan Tribune — Delegate Gregorio Kilili C. Sablan (Ind-MP) said he’s confident that the federal government is trying its best to address the CW crisis in the CNMI, which occurred when the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service announced that its Fiscal Year 2015 CW cap of 12,999 had been reached. “We all know people whose lives are being turned upside down by the unexpected cut-off of applications for CW permits for this fiscal year. No matter what your opinion on having our economy so dependent on foreign workers, we all feel saddened when other human beings face losing their income and leaving a place they have called home for many years. Sablan also said there may not be a solution to this situation that will satisfy everyone. He, however, assured that the officials he has worked with over the last eight years at USCIS and at the Secretary’s office in the Department of Homeland Security have always done their best to avoid adverse consequences, as the law requires, when
Senate bill triggers $4.7 m. PSS increase
The new formula I included in the Every Student Succeeds Act in December increases federal help for elementary and high school students in the Northern Mariana Islands by almost $5 million, beginning in fiscal year 2017. But it requires that overall spending for the low-income student program, Title I-A, rises. The President’s budget recommended an increase. And the Senate Committee on Appropriations has now taken another step to that higher funding level by sending the Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education Appropriation for fiscal 2017 to the full Senate for a vote with an increase of $500 million over fiscal 2016. Currently, Northern Marianas schools get $6.8 million in the Title I-A funding. At the Senate Appropriations Committee’s recommended level — and with my new funding formula kicking in — the NMI grant will increase nearly 70 percent to $11.4 million. That is over $1,000 for every student from Title I-A.
