The Guam Election Reform Act of 2007 will go up for a public hearing next Monday. Bill 383 is one of several pieces of proposed legislation introduced by outgoing Senator Bob Klitzkie (R) in response to the myriad of problems that surfaced during the recent Decision 2006 elections. The legislation would create the Bureau of Elections which would replace the Guam Election Commission and supervised by a new position, the Administrator of Elections. Together they will handle the operational side of elections on Guam. A newly created Board of Canvass and Appeals will hear challenges to election procedures, promulgate rules and certify elections.

Additionally for the 28th Guam legislature, a number of other bills including legislation relative to adding an additional judge to the Superior Court is on the agenda, as well the appointments of David Hahn and David Burnham to the Guam Ethics Commission will be up for public testimony.

The hearing is scheduled for Monday from 8am-5pm.
