I do not agree with the interference with the Island territories and blocking minimum wages but there is some positive in the legislation. The right thing to skis give the territories statehood or the same level of autonomy as a state has.

This bill would expand turtle conservation areas, which helps protect sea turtles, which most populations are relatively endangered, and establishes an energy plan, which will help start getting these islands more electrical power and this could allow them to use technology to develop themselves more and improve their people's education. The expansion of the Northern Mariana Island's territory could be beneficial to them in terms of giving them access to more resources. So for the most part, I would argue that this bill is pretty beneficial to them.

Argument opposed

No war reparations for survivors of the Japanese occupation of Guam.

I vote no because it holds back a minimum wage increase for NMI. If they want one, they should have it.

No real reason to spend that kind of taxpayers money with no real benefit. Most of this bill could be done without spending Millions.

Preventing minimum wage increases for the benefit of turtles? No thanks. My nay could become a yea with that amendment to the omnibus bill.
