Kilili commends Saipan Rotary Club for Soudelor aid
Marianas Variety — U.S. Congressman Gregorio Kilili Sablan has commended the Rotary Club of Saipan for the role it played “in the remarkable journey from disaster to recovery” after Typhoon Soudelor hit Saipan in August last year. In a letter to the Saipan Rotarians which their president Curtis Dancoe read on Tuesday, Sablan said the club rose to the challenge of Typhoon Soudelor “with courage, fortitude and generosity.” He said to commemorate the efforts of the Rotary Club of Saipan, he entered a statement of commendation in the U.S. Congressional Record on Dec. 15, 2015. “With everyone’s help, our community has been able to get back on its feet,” he added. “We are restoring and rebuilding our island home, and I believe that we will be stronger and more resilient than before.” In his statement of commendation to the U.S. House of Representatives, Sablan narrated how Typhoon Soudelor caused widespread destruction to homes

Sablan (Ind-MP) clarified on Friday that if U.S. Congress enacted an oversight board to manage Puerto Rico’s fiscal crisis this would have “nothing to do” with any other territories or commonwealths and does not apply to the Northern Marianas at all. But, he added, because of the uniformity requirement of Congressional legislation, Sablan said, the NMI would be included “in the authorization to establish an oversight board.” Gov. Ralph DLG Torres earlier expressed concern that this bill would “impose” and “is infringing” the CNMI’s self-government. To “protect” the Commonwealth, Sablan said on Friday, he is watching the draft legislation closely and is asking, “for language that would protect us and the other territories from the application oversight board for Puerto Rico.” This language would entail “lack of effect on the Covenant” and “mutual consent” provisions. “We are spearheading a letter or req











Kilili: Free college a reality in the NMI
Marianas Variety — U.S. Congressman Gregorio Kilili Camacho Sablan said college is free today for over 90 percent of students at Northern Marianas College thanks to the Student Aid and Fiscal Responsibility Act or SAFRA passed by the Democratic majority in Congress and signed into law by President Obama six years ago. “I was one of the 22 original co-sponsors of this landmark legislation that increased the amount of the Pell Grant for lower income students — this year’s maximum is $5,775 — and also made more students eligible,” Kilili said in his latest e-newsletter. “The year before I came to Congress 569 NMC students qualified. Today, as a result of SAFRA, 1,026 NMC students get the Pell Grant, which covers the full cost of tuition. “We paid for all of this by ending subsidies that banks and other financial institutions were getting to administer the student loan program. “SAFRA also created the five-year College Access Challenge Grant program that provided $7.5 m
