CCUSA urges Senate to pass PROMESA

June 23, 2016

CCUSA wrote a letter to the Senate urging the lawmakers to take up and pass PROMESA, the Puerto Rico Oversight, Management, and Economic Stability Act. The bill will allow the island to restructure its debt and continue to pay for needed social services. The House of Representatives passed the legislation with bipartisan support and robust language to address child poverty in Puerto Rico. Aspects of the bill could be strengthened, but it allows Puerto Rico to take the first steps towards long-term reform. Read the full letter.
