Tomorrow’s Scheduled Committee Hearing on the Future of Puerto Rico’s Political Status Will Be Postponed to a Later Date to Be Announced

Washington, D.C. – The Natural Resources Committee is postponing Friday’s scheduled hearing on the future of Puerto Rico’s political status until a later date to be announced. The extraordinary level of public interest in offering testimony has created the need to evaluate the best way to include stakeholder input while maintaining the hearing’s objective, fact-finding purpose. This Committee is seeking the best available information on non-territory status options for Puerto Rico and recommendations to advance Puerto Rico’s decolonization. The best way to get that information is through an open, fact-based discussion as free of personal political agendas as possible.
