Money woes for the American Samoa government

3:24 pm on 11 August 2010

American Samoa's treasurer has informed Fono leaders the Legislature only has enough funds remaining in its Fiscal year 2010 budget to cover one more payroll.

The Fono's budget for the current fiscal year is 6.1 million US dollars and is supposed to last until September the 30th.

Magalei Logovii says the Governor instructed his staff to review all accounts from government agencies and departments.
