Sen. Rick Scott Prepares for a Two-Day Trip to Puerto Rico
Sen. Rick Scott announced Friday that he will travel to Puerto Rico on Sunday and Monday to discuss ongoing efforts to rebuild and recover following Hurricane Maria. Last week Scott filed an amendment to provide an additional $600 million in disaster recovery funding for Puerto Rico.
Congresswoman Jenniffer González-Colón expressed her profound gratitude.
“Senator Rick Scott is the voice of Puerto Rico in the U.S. Senate, and I am proud to welcome him to the island," González-Colón said. "His first speech and first action as senator was to support Puerto Rico, which shows that he was serious when he promised to fight for us. I am honored to work with him to continue to make sure Puerto Rico has all the resources we need to rebuild.”
