Senator Hatch Wants Puerto Rico Debt Crisis Resolved Before Holiday
Sharon Edmondson, Washington Legislative Team Member | December 09, 2015
Senate Finance Committee Chairman Hatch (R-UT) wants to address Puerto Rico’s debt crisis before Congress adjourns for the year.
Hatch and Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR) plan to introduce a bill today on this matter. Addressing the crisis might not mean passing legislation immediately but making sure that Puerto Rico can pay its immediate debts is what could be the resolution to the matter. Senators and staff were in talks with the Puerto Rican government to work on the crisis.
