I'm just saying

The Saipan Tribune is reporting that Gov. Benigno R. Fitial wants to let the Commonwealth Utilities Corporation borrow as much money as it wants.

According to the Tribune, "the executive order includes a clause allowing the plan to be effective immediate upon being approved by one house of the Legislature." Is there another clause suspending Article X, Section 3 of the CNMI Constitution?
Public Debt Authorization. Public debt may not be authorized or incurred without the affirmative vote of two-thirds of the members in each house of the legislature.

Doesn't he mean take money? Maybe I'm slow, but when you borrow something from someone you need their permission. What security will they provide? Their word? We've all seen how that goes down. Oh well, did you get your candles ready for the next power outage? We just re-stocked ours.

I hadn't even gotten to borrowing without oversight by what is arguably the most irresponsible government agency.

Why try to do in in an unconstitutional way?
