American Samoa legislators may approve short budget

9:32 am on 23 September 2011

There's talk of the Fono approving only a partial budget for the American Samoa Government for Fiscal Year 2012.

If that does happen, it would be the first time that the Fono has ever approved a budget shorter than 12 months.

Treasurer Magalei Logovii was questioned again yesterday by the joint budget committees about aspects of the budget that lawmakers were unclear about, and what to do about unpaid ASG subsidies for semi autonomous agencies.
