‘Permanent CW program in Congress difficult’
Saipan Tribune - U.S. Delegate Gregorio Kilili C. Sablan (Ind-MP) said Friday it is important to come to an agreement “at home” on what the CNMI’s contract worker needs are as stakeholders differ on whether to pursue a permanent or an extended contract worker program, ahead of formal talks with the White House on the issue and a potential push of legislation through U.S. Congress. Sablan also said it is important that consultation with the White House is successful, “ so that we have the backing of the President” in changes proposed to Congress for the CW program. Top business leaders advising the government on economic policy on Tuesday voted to recommend that Gov. Ralph DLG Torres pursue a permanent program of some 18,000 workers to meet the project development needs of Saipan, Tinian, and Rota. A “great majority” of the Strategic Economic Development Council had voted to make this recommendation based on the “future number of operating, staff required” for the isla











Listening Session with NMI Legislature
Listening sessions on the future of the Commonwealth’s transitional CW worker program continued during a working lunch this week with members of the 19th Northern Marianas House of Representatives. I have had meetings with Governor Torres, the Commonwealth Senate, members of the Strategic Economic Development Council, and other stakeholders. I plan to also meet with US workers, CW workers, other members of the business community, and the mayors of our four municipalities. The CW program is due to expire in 2019, and these listening sessions will help me understand the range of issues and perspectives about whether or not the transition period should be extended, and, if so, for how long and for how many workers. Any extension will require an act of Congress, and will not be easy to achieve, but if the people of the Marianas and their elected leaders can reach agreement on this issue, we will be in a better position to make our case in Congress.

Working together for better mail service
We get regular reports from constituents about mail delays to and from the Northern Marianas Islands, but fixing the problem will require us all to work together. We are asking everyone who has experienced a delivery delay to provide evidence to the congressional office that we can then give to the U.S. Postal Service to back up the claim that mail is not reaching the Northern Mariana Islands in a timely fashion. Evidence includes the actual envelope that your mail came in, which has bar codes, postmarks, and other invisible tracking labels. Evidence would also include a tracking number for mail that was certified or registered. Your congressional office has already begun to submit this kind of evidence of mail delay to the Postal Service, but the more examples we provide the clearer it will be that a problem exists. The tracking information will also allow the Postal Service to identify the exact places in the delivery system where bottlenecks are occurring. Evidence of mail delay can
