Grijalva Statement on Hearing to Address Debt Crisis in Puerto Rico

Tucson, Ariz. – Ranking Member Raúl M. Grijalva (D-Ariz.) released the following statement on Chairman Rob Bishop’s (R-Utah) announcement that a hearing on a draft Puerto Rico debt restructuring bill will be held on April 13, followed by a markup on April 14. An earlier version of a draft bill was released last week by Natural Resources Committee Republicans.

“Everyone is working hard and in good faith on the Puerto Rico bill, and it’s still a work in progress,” Grijalva said. “I look forward to a hearing and I’m hopeful that my colleagues on the Committee will remain focused on our common goals here – helping the families living on the island and giving Puerto Rico a clear path forward.”
