Yomiuri wrote that the GOJ decided yesterday to trim central government subsidies and grants for Okinawa in FY2017 by 14 billion yen to about 321 billion yen, speculating that the cut is intended to hold Governor Onaga in check on account of his opposition to the FRF construction off Camp Schwab. It added that some officials are worried that the reduction may boomerang by prompting the Okinawa leader to become even more confrontational. Mainichi ran a similar story, quoting an unnamed senior Okinawa official as saying: “The cut is truly regrettable.”
