New payroll tax effective this year
Lawmakers were told yesterday that Gov. Togiola Tulafono had signed the $3 million loan bill for the hospital, into law.
Togiola officially notified the Fono in a Feb. 16 letter that he had signed the bill and also executed, on behalf of ASG, a loan agreement with LBJ.
All fee increases that were effective Feb. 6, are now rolled back completely and will remain at pre-increase levels until the loan is repaid in full, Togiola wrote.
