THE Senate Committee on Resources, Economic Development and Programs will meet tomorrow, Tuesday, at 10 a.m. to discuss several measures including House Bill 21-3, which intends to “enhance the Marianas Visitors Authority’s promoting capabilities in attracting tourists to visit the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands.”

Authored by Rep. Joseph Leepan T. Guerrero, chair of the House Committee on Commerce and Tourism, the bill would expand the statutory duties of MVA to promote tourism.

This would include allowing  MVA to develop, construct, improve, and maintain tourist sites and other facilities that could potentially attract visitors, as well as authorizing MVA to issue grants for projects and programs “to increase visitors’ satisfaction.”

Comments on H.B. 21-3 have been received from the Office of the Mayor of the Municipality of Saipan, MVA, the 17th Tinian Municipal Council, the Office of the Attorney General, and the Saipan Chamber of Commerce.

Members of the general public are welcome to provide comments at the committee meeting.
