Guthertz Calls for More Transparency of ROD's Bio Diversity Plan
excerpt from above:
Quote:
Guthertz says the ROD reveals that a regional Micronesia Biosecurity Plan is being developed by a Navy contractor. The MBP “will include risk assessments for invasive species throughout Micronesia and procedures to avoid, minimize, and mitigate these risks."

In a letter to Assistant Secretary of the Navy Jackalyne Pfannenstiel, Senator Guthertz said that to her knowledge, the biosecurity plan is not yet final and is being developed with Navy funding by a U.S. mainland firm. She also said that her understanding was that the plan “will not include the physical resources (personnel, equipment, facilities, etc.) required to handle and mitigate bio-security/invasive species issues that will occur during the military buildup.” There’s apparently also no federal funding for carrying out the plan at this point...
