March 23, 2017 (Koror, Palau) If no action is taken by Olbiil Era Kelulau (OEK) and the President within the next week, the Environmental Impact Fee will take effect and will be collected at the airport from arriving passengers on April 1st.
Yesterday OEK transmitted the House bill 10-22-1, HD1,SD2 to President Remengesau seeking to repeal the Environmental Impact Fee rather than delaying its implementation as initially proposed by the President.
