A Congressional committee has approved the leasing 10 acres of National Park land to the VI government for construction of a high school. The Committee on Natural Resources sent the authorization bill to the full House. Virgin Islands Delegate Donna Christensen, who authored the bill, told the Virgin Islands Daily News she expects House action by the end of the month.
Interestingly, Christensen’s Web site makes no mention of the matter. In fact, her Web site has been virtually dead for five months. A link to "Newsletters" has nothing more recent than Summer 2006. There have been no press releases since late April. Looks like the Delegate is ignoring the Web site.
