    They can use their own funding for the turtles, and border extension. The border extension should be free, and the minimum wage should be a territory law, not national. Most notably, the energy thing shouldn't happen if it ruins the land, such as building power plants. These islands are beautiful and should remain untouched.

    Let us stop having Congress dictate every minute law to the territories. Give the territories self-determination, as they are entitled to, and allow them to become states or independent nations. If they choose to remain as territories, at least give them representation as if they were state, home rule, and equal taxation responsibilities. Let us stop treating our territories like colonies -- we rebelled for the same.

    I vote no because it holds back a minimum wage increase for NMI. If they want one, they should have it.

    More should be done to grant full citizenship and voting rights to those in all U.S. territories. This doesn't go far enough, but it does address some important issues.

    Preventing minimum wage increases for the benefit of turtles? No thanks. My nay could become a yea with that amendment to the omnibus bill.

    I do not agree with the interference with the Island territories and blocking minimum wages but there is some positive in the legislation. The right thing to skis give the territories statehood or the same level of autonomy as a state has.

    This bill would expand turtle conservation areas, which helps protect sea turtles, which most populations are relatively endangered, and establishes an energy plan, which will help start getting these islands more electrical power and this could allow them to use technology to develop themselves more and improve their people's education. The expansion of the Northern Mariana Island's territory could be beneficial to them in terms of giving them access to more resources. So for the most part, I would argue that this bill is pretty beneficial to them.

    No real reason to spend that kind of taxpayers money with no real benefit. Most of this bill could be done without spending Millions.
