Maloney Calls For More Aid To Puerto Rico

ORANGE COUNTY, N.Y. – Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (D- Orange County) called for urgent additional aid for Puerto Rico after visiting the island to survey the damage and learn more about recovery efforts.

“Our initial response is finally coming together and although the challenges seem almost overwhelming, we will get through this crisis together as Americans,” Maloney said in a statement. “I remember being in the City on 9/11 and walking to work to find a pile of rubble and not knowing if my kid was safe and just feeling totally powerless – the folks in Puerto Rico are dealing with a serious crisis like that and we need to get in the game to help like we did after 9/11.”

The House of Representatives will vote tomorrow on a $36.5 billion emergency aid package to Puerto Rico. The measure will provide $18.7 billion for FEMA and $16 billion for the flood insurance program. Nearly $5 billion of the funding allocated for FEMA will provide low-interest Treasury loans to help the Government of Puerto Rico continue to operate in the face of a massive debt crisis.
