Republican Senator Robert Klitzkie has introduced Bill 147, and according to Klitzkie the measure would provide the Governor the necessary tools he needs to reorganize the government.

“The Governor can abolish agencies, the Governor can transfer functions from one agency to another, the Governor can go inside of many of the agencies to bring about economies inside the agencies. He can move appropriations from one agency to another when a function's been transferred things like this,” he told KUAM News.

Klitzkie adds Bill 147 contains a mechanism in which public hearings would be held as the Governor moves forward with reorganization.

There's no word yet when Bill 147 will go up for a public hearing.
