Governor vetoes bill to amend zoning law

The bill would allow gambling machines or poker arcades “within the tourist resort and mixed commercial districts on lots abutting or west of Beach Road and Chalan Thomas Sablan from Afetna Road to Chalan Msgr. Guerrero to Orchid St., as well as in Garapan Core, Garapan East and Beach Road zoning districts, if the business is located no less than 200 feet away from a church, a Laundromat, public or private school, park, or playground.”

GOVERNOR Ralph DLG Torres on Tuesday vetoed House Local Bill 20-80 which would have deleted a provision in the current law that requires a 250-foot distance between poker establishments.

In a telephone interview, Barcinas said the Saipan Zoning Office supported the bill, but added that it was the governor’s prerogative to veto it.

H.L.B. 20-80, authored by former Rep. Donald Barcinas, proposed “to reduce the impediment for adult gambling machine businesses to move from the residential villages by allowing multiple adult gambling machine businesses to co-locate in the same establishment, and to allow adult gambling machine businesses to concentrate in the designated areas approved for their location.”

He is now the Democratic nominee for the Precinct 3 special election scheduled for March 23.

In his veto message, the governor said the bill’s author failed to get the Office of Planning and Development involved in drafting the measure.

He said he must expect that legislation he authored will be rejected by the governor.

Barcinas, who was elected to the House of Representatives as a Republican in 2016, bolted the party days prior to the Nov. 2018 elections and joined the Independent-Democratic coalition. He finished seventh in Precinct 3 which has six House seats.

“In light of the author’s failure to acquire the pertinent involvement of the Office of Planning and Development regarding the potential repercussions of another amendment to the Saipan Zoning Law, I must respectfully exercise my constitutional authority to veto this bill,” the governor said.
