Kilili bill backs 902 team immigration goals
Keeping the promise I made to Governor Ralph Torres, I introduced legislation, H.R. 5888, that reflects the immigration policy proposals presented by the Governor and his team of negotiators in Section 902 consultations with the White House in June. This Congress may not act on the bill, because immigration is controversial and because there are few legislative work days left in the year. But having the legislation introduced could strengthen the Governor’s negotiating position in 902. I had a bill prepared when the Governor arrived in June for the first round of 902 talks. But changes were made by the 902 teams upon their arrival, so the draft bill had to go back to the House Legislative Counsel for revision. The 902 team has proposed—and the bill now includes—extension of the current immigration transition period through 2029. By that year the number of Commonwealth-only (CW) foreign workers will have to be reduced to zero. The 902 team added a proposal that some long-time, law











College Dashboard bill passes House
The House passed a bill I sponsored to help students and their families get more of the information they need to select a college. I also managed debate on the bill, the Strengthening Transparency in Higher Education Act, H.R. 3178, for the Democratic side of the Education Committee. The bill creates a new “College Dashboard” that will put key financial and academic data about the nation’s colleges and universities online. By standardizing the information from more than 7,000 colleges and universities the College Dashboard will make it easier for families to compare schools side-by-side. And by putting all the information in one place online, the bill will give students and families, even in geographically remote areas such as the Northern Marianas, a better basis for making one of life’s most financially significant decisions. This was one of five college-related bills to pass the House last week. These bipartisan measures are seen as an early step towards reauthorization of t











Kilili introduces immigration bill in US Congress
Saipan Tribune — WASHINGTON, D.C.- Delegate Gregorio Kilili C. Sablan (Ind-MP) introduced immigration legislation Thursday at the House of Representatives in Washington, D.C., which he says reflects the goals of CNMI Gov. Ralph DLG Torres’ immigration policy proposals introduced during 902 consultations last month. “That’s the intention of introducing this bill now. It’s to mirror the governor’s 902 consultation proposal and support and show there is an agreement from Commonwealth officials on this policy,” Sablan told Saipan Tribune. Sablan clarifies he dropped the bill at Congress, a form of introducing the bill. “You drop the bill and the Parliamentarian takes it and assigns it to a committee and then it’s referred to Committee on Judiciary because it has to do with immigration.” H.R. 5888 calls for amending section 6 of “A Joint Resolution to approve the Covenant To Establish a Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands in Political Union with the United Sta
