American Samoa Governor Calls Additional Special Session
American Samoa lawmakers returned Monday for an additional 15-day special session.
Gov. Lolo Matalasi Moliga extended the session with the only issue on the agenda to revisit the final fiscal year 2021 budget.
The governor remains opposed to the $6.5 million in drastic cuts made by the Fono to the budgets for executive branch departments.
The Fono leaders had told the governor in an October 13th letter they are not confident with governor’s revenue projections.
They further urged the governor to act on the final fiscal year 2021 budget bill now in his control.
