Rota delegation approves $522K funding

THE Rota Legislative Delegation has approved a funding measure for the island.

The delegation headed by Senate Vice President Steve Mesngon on Monday passed House Local Bill 20-38 which will appropriate $522,189 for Rota.

The bill was introduced by House Floor Leader Glenn Maratita and the funding source is the Saipan casino license fee payment.

According to the measure, the salaries of the municipal employees are not funded under the fiscal year 2018 budget of the mayor of Rota and the last medical subsistence appropriation was for February and March 2017.

The measure stated that it is necessary to appropriate some funds to pay the municipal employees/ salaries and the medical subsistence for April and May 2017.

The bill now goes to the governor.
