Sen. Therese Terlaje has introduced Bill 163, which would strengthen protections for Guam's environment and cultural and historic properties, according to Terlaje's office.

Bill 163 would allow the Attorney General's office to hire a private lawyer for the purpose of litigation "on behalf of Guam" related to Agent Orange, PCB's, radiation and Superfund sites on island.

The measure would also allow the lawyer to pursue litigation for violations of the National Historic Preservation Act relative to Guam's cultural and historical properties, a release from Senator Terlaje said.

The lawyer would be hired on a contingency basis. According to the bill, the lawyer would be paid no more than 1/3 of any money recovered if a lawsuit is successful.
