This week the KBE Council met to discuss the $5.1 million budget demanded by the US Interior Department for the KBE local government for fiscal year 2010 due to the worldwide economic decline and the resulting decrease in the Bikinians’ trust fund. This new budget will mean some very drastic changes for the people of Bikini.

Mayor Kelen, Senator Juda, some of the KBE Council, Johnny Johnson, and Trust Liaison Jack Niedenthal met in Majuro with representatives from the US Department of Energy to discuss the status of Bikini Atoll and the ongoing US monitoring of the radiological situation on the islands.
