WELLINGTON, New Zealand (Radio New Zealand International, June 30) –American Samoa Congressman Eni Faleomavaega has met with McDonald’s corporate director to discuss a controversial proposal to build a fast food restaurant on prime beachfront property.

McDonalds had planned to build a restaurant at Utulei, but the American Samoa senate said he informed McDonald’s coporation director Bo Bryant of the Senate resolution opposing the beach front development.

Byrant said he was not aware of these developments and expressed concern that there were questions surrounding the lease agreement.

The congressman is considering introducing legislation to include Utulei Beach as part of the National Park of American Samoa, to prevent any fast food business from building there.
