The Department of Defense has submitted the military buildup master plan, which the U.S. Senate required to lift the freeze on tens to hundreds of millions of dollars worth of annual funding toward building a Marine base on Guam.

Maj. Darren Alvarez, deputy director of the Joint Guam Program Office – Forward, which deals with military buildup issues on Guam, confirmed this morning that the master plan has been submitted to Congress.

Congress received the master plan a few days ago.

With the submission, there’s hope that it fills the requirement to lift the buildup funding restrictions, Alvarez said.

More buildup-related projects could start once the Record of Decision is released.

The Record of Decision is expected to be released next year.
