Bishop: Obama Administration’s Proposed Changes to Puerto Rico Legislation Necessitate Markup Delay


WASHINGTON, D.C., April 13, 2016 -

Today, after the House Committee on Natural Resources adjourned markup on H.R. 4900, the “Puerto Rico Oversight, Management, and Economic Stability Act (PROMESA),” Chairman Rob Bishop (R-UT) issued the following statement:

“The Administration is still negotiating on provisions of the legislation, creating uncertainty in both parties. This legislation needs bipartisan support, but Members need time to understand the complexity of the issue and the ramifications of any proposed changes. It is unfair to all Members to force a vote with provisions still being negotiated.”
