Earlier this week, the House of Representative included the $1.3 million commitment to the telco in the $15 million appropriations bill that also gave $7 million to the CNMI Judiciary to fix its mould and air-conditioning problems.
The legislation still needs to be passed by the senate and supported by the governor. ■
