Sen. Warren Leads Congressional Delegation Trip to Puerto Rico

Sunday, January 14, 2018

 

Senator Elizabeth Warren led a congressional delegation trip to Puerto Rico to conduct oversight of Hurricane Maria recovery.

During the trip, the delegation will survey the damage from Hurricane Maria, assess the work and resources necessary to help the island fully recover.

"Far too many of our fellow U.S. citizens are still without electricity and the resources they need to rebuild. Even before Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico, Massachusetts was the proud home of 300,000 Puerto Ricans - and thousands more have come to the Bay State since Hurricane Maria upended their lives. We're going to Puerto Rico to see firsthand the devastation on the island and how we can help our fellow citizens along the path to a full recovery. We have not forgotten our brothers and sisters in Puerto Rico - they can count on us,” the delegation members said.

During the trip, the members will visit Hospital del Nino in San Juan, Integral Health Council of Loiza and a shelter in Canovanas.

The members will also receive a briefing at JFO in Guayanabo from representatives of the Department of Homeland Security, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, and Health and Human Services.
