The final session of the 33rd Legislature begins in American Samoa tomorrow with the fiscal year 2017 budget as the main topic on the agenda.

The new fiscal year begins on October 1st.

The Budget director Catherine Saelua said she hopes to have the spending blueprint in CD form.

Our correspondent said while the government of Governor Lolo Matalasi Moliga has made a push to go paperless, lawmakers have demanded the budget be in printed form or they will not act on it.
