Kilili appointed to Veterans’ Affairs Committee
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Gregorio Kilili Camacho Sablan has been appointed to serve on the House Veterans’ Affairs Committee, it was announced this week. Veterans’ Affairs will be the Congressman’s third committee, which required a special waiver from the usual two-committee limit for members of the Democratic Caucus. “Veterans in the Marianas need more attention,” Sablan said. “Too often, veterans and their families in the islands—and around the nation—are forgotten, after giving so much. “So, I went to Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi and asked for a waiver of the Caucus rule that would allow me to serve on Veterans’ Affairs without giving up my other equally important committee assignments. “After listening to my explanation of the situation for our Marianas veterans, Leader Pelosi submitted my request to the Democratic Steering and Policy Committee with her recommendation for its approval. And the Committee voted this week approving my request. “I a

Kilili to host free Veterans Resource Fair in Feb.
Saipan Tribune — Delegate Gregorio Kilili C. Sablan (Ind-MP) is hosting the first Northern Marianas Veterans Resource Fair this month, to provide veterans, military service members, and their families with information about federal and local programs that are available to assist and support them. The event is free and open to the public. “The goal of this Veterans Resource Fair is to help connect those who have served in our nation’s military, and our military families, with the resources that can benefit them right here in the Marianas,” Sablan said. “I encourage our veterans, service members, and their families on Saipan, Tinian, and Rota to come to the fair on their respective islands, learn more about the different programs that are available, and meet with the agencies and service providers who are here to help them.” The dates, times, and venues for the Veterans Resource Fair are as follows: -SAIPAN – Feb. 22, Pedro P. Tenorio Multi-Ppurpose Center, 1pm – 7pm











Answers sought to cut wait-times
Saipan Tribune — Responding to Marianas Visitors Authority concerns about long immigration wait-times at the Francisco C. Ada Saipan International Airport, the Office of Delegate Gregorio Kilili C. Sablan (Ind-MP) assured the agency that several measures are being looked at to expedite the process. In an earlier interview, MVA had expressed belief that the long wait-time could possibly be due to the shortage of manpower at the Customs and Border Protection unit. According to MVA, CBP officials informed them that a manpower cap was imposed on CBP by Congress, limiting the number of CBP employees for the CNMI to 20. Sablan’s letter denied that claim. According to the letter, dated Feb. 3, 2017, and addressed to MVA chair Marian Aldan-Pierce, Sablan said he himself has met with CBP officials in Washington, D.C. and discussed CBP resources with the Congressional Research Service. “Both CBP and CRS report to me that the statement [MVA] asked about is not true. There is no cap set
