A Strong History

Senator Sabina Flores Perez (Democrat) currently serves in the 37th Guam Legislature as the Chairperson on the Committee on Environment, Revenue and Taxation, Labor, Procurement, and Statistics, Research, and Planning.

Perez’s grassroots work spans over 15 years, from which she fought for the public’s rights to clean water through the Water for All Campaign, advocated for the rights of self-determination at the United Nations, and protected our natural and cultural resources with the organization Prutehi Litekyan.

Perez has utilized her experiences as a teacher, researcher, and environmental advocate in her career as a Senator – to address long-standing issues and develop innovative and sustainable policies in collaboration with her colleagues in the 35th, 36th, and 37th Guam Legislatures.

In the 35th Guam Legislature, she passed a bill to overhaul the Safe Drinking Water Act and introduced a bill to regulate PFAS, ‘forever chemicals’ recently found in our drinking water (Bills 283-35 now P.L. 35-115, & Bill 174-35).

In the 36th Guam Legislature, she passed Public Law 36-139 to halt DOD’s open burning of toxic waste, and Bills 293-35 and 314-35 to preserve our island’s native forests, maintain biodiversity, and to prevent wildland fires. In an effort to reduce Guam’s reliance on fossil fuels, she promoted the transition to energy efficient products, renewable energy, and zero emission vehicles (P.L. 35-45 & P.L. 35-81).

In the 37th Guam Legislature, she passed Bill 101-37 to ensure Guam complied with the U.S. EPA’s standards for sulfur dioxide mitigation, and Bill 1-37 to prevent tax increases to homes and businesses for the installation of solar panels. She also passed Bills to streamline the removal of abandoned and junk vehicles, and established the Ordot Dump Reserve Fund to comply with the U.S. EPA’s Clean Water Act (Bills 104-37 & 182-37).

Looking forward, Senator Perez will continue to empower the people of Guam through promoting cultural stewardship, protecting public over private interests, encouraging environmental conservation, and ingraining the concept of Inafa’maolek in our island’s policy. She remains committed to building resilient communities, diversifying and localizing our economy, promoting early literacy and education, and finding solutions for affordable housing and healthcare and wellness for the people of Guam.
