Senator Bob Klitzkie (R) has introduced legislation that would "patriate" the Organic Act of Guam. "We would be able to make amendments to our Organic Act here instead of having to go to Congress every time we want to change the framework of our local government," he explained of the bill's intent.

Klitzkie adds that this would be done by passing a resolution through a two-thirds majority vote of two successive legislatures, and then must get final approval from voters.
