American Samoa legislature opens this week

7:19 pm on 11 July 2011

The second session of American Samoa's 32nd Legislature sits from tomorrow in American Samoa and will run through to September.

Top of the agenda for lawmakers is the budget for the next fiscal year, which begins on the 1st of October.

By law the budget should be available at the beginning of the session but it's not yet ready and it's unclear as to when it will be sent to the Fono for consideration.
