Rubio, González-Colón Secure Funding Priorities for Puerto Rico in Budget Deal

Feb 7, 2018 | Press Releases

Washington, D.C.— U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Congresswoman Jenniffer González-Colón (R-PR) released the following statements today after securing their budget priorities for Puerto Rico in the latest budget deal:
“I am pleased our work on the Senate Appropriations Committee has resulted in this much-needed disaster relief for our fellow American citizens in Puerto Rico,” said Rubio. “Virtually all of our spending priorities for Puerto Rico are included in this deal, including two years of funding for Medicaid and additional money for infrastructure, hospitals, community health centers and grid work repair. This would not have been possible without the support of my colleagues in the Senate and the tireless work of  Resident Commissioner Jenniffer González-Colón in the House.”
“Today’s Senate budget deal includes billions of dollars in vitally-needed disaster relief funding for Puerto Rico, including an unprecedented two-year allocation for Puerto Rico’s Medicaid Program with a 100% federal share, and $2 billion directed to rebuild the Island’s electric power grid, among other provisions,” said González-Colón. “This outcome would not have been possible without the steadfast leadership of my friend Senator Marco Rubio, who, for all practical purposes, has become Puerto Rico’s representative and lead advocate in the US Senate. Puerto Rico’s recovery will require a long term commitment from Congress, but today’s compromise constitutes a big step in the right direction.”
