The Department of Defense has submitted the military buildup master plan, which the U.S. Senate required to lift the freeze on tens to hundreds of millions of dollars worth of annual funding toward building a Marine base on Guam.

Maj. Darren Alvarez, deputy director of the Joint Guam Program Office – Forward, which deals with military buildup issues on Guam, confirmed this morning that the master plan has been submitted to Congress.

Congress received the master plan a few days ago.

With the submission, there’s hope that it fills the requirement to lift the buildup funding restrictions, Alvarez said.

More buildup-related projects could start once the Record of Decision is released.

The Record of Decision is expected to be released next year.

This story is developing.

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin
