FSM Congress delays January session

PALIKIR, Pohnpei (FSM Congress) — Speaker Wesley W. Simina has moved the January session or the third regular session of the 20th Congress of the Federated States of Micronesia from Jan. 10 to the 29th.

Speaker Simina’s letter to President Peter M. Christian explained that the slight delay is to “accommodate the hearing schedules of the committees, and other parliamentary obligations of the Congress.” It is also hoped that the delay would allow the Department of Finance to “reconcile the national accounts and allow for a more accurate picture” of the finances of the nation.

The session to be convened on the 29th will be for the 20-day duration of a regular session unless extended or shortened by resolution.

The sessions of the FSM Congress are open to all interested members of the general public.
