CONGRESSIONAL DELEGATION VISITING V.I.

Delegate Donna Christian-Christensen is hosting a visit to the territory this weekend by a delegation of her congressional colleagues.
Reps. Don Young of Alaska, Collin C. Peterson of Minnesota and Delegate Eni F.H. Faleomavaega of American Samoa met briefly Friday with Gov. Charles W. Turnbull.
Young, who chairs the House Resources Committee, made a commitment to support the V.I. government's efforts to get its fiscal house in order, according to a release from Government House. He also offered his support toward completing the Henry E. Rohlsen Airport expansion on St. Croix.
A 28-year member of Congress, Young is also the second-ranking Republican on the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee and a member of the Subcommittees on Aviation, Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation and on Water Resources and Environment.
Peterson, a Democrat, is a member of the Agriculture Committee, ranking member on the Subcommittee on Livestock and Horticulture, and member of the Veterans Affairs Committee and the Health Subcommittee.
Faleomavaega, a 12-year congressman, is on the Resources and International Relations Committees.
The delegation's schedule includes visits to St. John, Water Island and St. Croix over the weekend. The lawmakers, accompanied by spouses and staff members, are to leave the territory Monday.
