NMI provisions included in Defense authorization bill
Restrictions on the build-up and other Northern Mariana Islands-related provisions are part of the Fiscal Year 2017 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) marked up this week by the House Armed Services Committee Subcommittee on Readiness: National Guard language, included at my request, directs the Secretary of Defense to lay out all the steps necessary for establishing a Northern Marianas Guard unit. The National Guard Bureau reported to the Committee last year a Marianas Guard is feasible. There remain outstanding questions about recruiting capacity, force structure allocation, and overall costs that the Secretary will now have to answer. Concerns about the environmental and social impacts of live-fire ranges on Tinian or Pagan are also incorporated in the draft Defense bill. Aware that some 30,000 public comments were received on the 2015 Draft Environmental Impact Statement and that the U.S. Marine Corps has decided to revise the EIS to address these concerns, the Committee is
NMI awarded $75,000 for conservation and recreation projects
Congress has provided that part of the money paid for offshore oil and gas leases be distributed to states and insular areas through the Land and Water Conservation Fund. Interior Secretary Sally Jewell announced $75,000 from the Fund for the Northern Mariana Islands. The money is used to ensure public access to outdoor recreation areas, including parks, water resources, and athletic fields. Allocations are based on a formula set in the Land and Water Conservation Fund Act and the Gulf of Mexico Energy Security Act. A recent analysis of the Fund found that every $1 invested generated a $4 return for communities.
Getting to the bottom of the Saipan water crisis
Recently obtained data from the CNMI Bureau of Coastal and Environmental Quality confirm what people on Saipan are saying: water service is getting worse. I received the information from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and wrote about the new data in an op-ed. I have also talked to Governor Torres to learn more about the problem. Achieving 24-hour water for Saipan has been one of my top priorities since I entered office. Only 60 percent of Saipan families were getting round-the-clock service in 2008. But by 2013 that jumped to 94 percent after I increased annual federal funding from only $1 million to an average of $7 million — a total of $58 million since I started working here in Congress. CUC would have had to charge every customer $500 every year to get that much money invested in the water system. I will continue working for the federal support we need to help get us back on track to 24-hour water for all.
