Speaker says $7b in relief will help Puerto Rico — The Latest

The media is awash with headlines declaring the U.S. response to Puerto Rico a "Katrina Moment" for President Donald Trump, but the narrative completely ignores the facts on the ground.

But that lead (or "lede" if you're over 70 and chain-smoke at a seedy bar next door most of the day) is buried.

The waiver will guarantee the needed equipment to repair infrastructure damaged by the storm and restore emergency services, Duke said in a news release. "I live in Dorado, and it's completely flooded ... people can't leave their homes". Still, there have been requests for the DHS to issue a temporary waiver of the act similar to that issued September 8 for areas affected by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma - and which was reportedly unused because there was ample available Jones Act tonnage. In 2000 and 2004, Puerto Rico's Industrial, Tourist, Educational, Medical and Environmental Control Facilities Financing Authority (AFICA) issued the owners of the club a total of $25,497,854 in bonds to help build and launch the resort.

Those benefits, comparatively speaking, are dispersed; it's on the corporate side where concentrated blocs are going to fight like cornered wolverines to keep their special treatment intact. Power has been restored to the Schneider Hospital on St. Thomas. The contract for the booth was first reported by the Washington Post. "We're without gasoline. Without money". Food is in short supply.

"We have to have the Jones Act permanently repealed, they just gave it a 10-day waiver", McCain said.

As was the case in the White House's previous big heave on taxes, this reform proposal mixes 1981-style tax cuts with 1986-style simplification of the tax code. At least 16 people were killed.

On Tuesday night, Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rossello said he was satisfied with the administration's relief efforts and called Trump's performance "excellent".

House Speaker Paul Ryan says federal disaster relief accounts will get a boost of nearly $7 billion dollars by the end of the week to help hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico.

"Relaxing the Jones Act makes it cheaper for Puerto Rico to get goods and provide more opportunities for vessels to get humanitarian aid to the island", says Fialkoff. As a result of the episode, $32.6 million in government investment was not recouped. "This has become chaotic", she said. "When that happens I think we'll get a pretty good idea of how many kids are leaving daily from Puerto Rico into Florida", he said. The boards were dedicated to the Center for Israel Studies and to American Studies month as well as one outside the center for diversity and inclusion.

Mr. Kloza said most of Puerto Rico's fuel imports come on foreign-flag tankers from Canada and Europe.

Crowley has also secured additional vessels to handle government and commercial cargo. Instead, the grain is shipped by rail or truck (imposing environmental costs) - or even imported from abroad. Rossello appeared to warn the bondholders that the storm had made things worse. People are scavenging for food, collecting water from mountain streams and drinking the rain.

The White House and congressional Republicans are finalizing a tax plan that would slash the corporate rate while likely reducing the levy for the wealthiest Americans. Talking in any terms except those - especially when the problems are ongoing - is a giant mistake. He's also said he welcomes the review.
