Senators now are debating an amendment by Sen. Jim Moylan that will prohibit elected officials from working for GovGuam or getting a contract 12 months after they leave office. This would apply either if the elected official loses the election, or decides not to run.
Ex-senators and mayors who have lost elections have habitually been picked up by governors following the end of their terms.
The only exception would be for the filling of critical positions, such as teachers, police officers, etc.
Mr. Moylan's previous amendment to have the governor pay for her own security detail through her budget failed.
