What Is Public Law 28-57?

Public Law 28-57, otherwise known as the Transparency Act of 2005, was signed into law by Governor Felix P. Camacho on June 30, 2005. It mandates that all Government of Guam agencies and departments, inclusive of all autonomous agencies as well as the Legislature and Judiciary, develop and post a Web site within 120 days of the enactment of the law — by October 28, 2005. The law also requires each agency to post on its Web site several pieces of “required information.” The full text of Public Law 28-57 is available at the Web site of I Liheslaturan Guahan.
