Another hearing was held on reorganizing the Government of Guam this morning, with the discussion focused on Bill 217, a piece of legislation aimed at creating the Department of Public Safety. And like previous hearings Senator Bob Klitzkie (R) inquired how the reorganization would serve the public better, how would it help promote and adequate public education and, in his own words, "how will this reorganization help us save money to economize, and if we're saving money, how much?"

Chief of police Frank Ishizaki responded by saying, "Well for now I don't think its an overnight thing, I think you establish the thing I guess and once we meet our needs as far as equipment and everything then in the long run it will materialize, I guess."

The reorganization hearing was continued with Bill 218, which establishes the Department of Tourism and Culture.
