A measure to declare September as Prostate Cancer Awareness Month was approved in committee Tuesday. It would join the other special days, weeks and months that the V.I. governor issues an annual proclamation about each year.
Lt. Gov. Osbert Potter will serve as acting governor from June 10 to 17, when Gov. Kenneth Mapp travels out of the territory to attend the National Governors Association’s Education Symposium and associated meetings. Mapp is scheduled to return June 17.
The territory will be closer to compliance with National Association of Insurance Commissioners’ expectations and will regulate holding companies in the same way as all 50 states if legislation approved in committee recently is enacted into law.
