Public hearing for a Guam ‘Pandemic Bill of Rights’

A public hearing for a bill establishing a “Pandemic Bill of Rights” will be held at 12:30 p.m. Tuesday. 

Sen. Louise Muña introduced Bill 382, which states “the state of public health emergency declared as a result of the coronavirus pandemic has shed light on numerous suspensions, restrictions and limitations of constitutional and civil rights on Guam and throughout the United States.” 

“The spirit of any protective orders during a state of public health emergency must be cognizant and considerate of the enumerated constitutional rights of a free people in a republic were the people are the masters and government is their servant,” the bill states.
