Committee Invites Puerto Rico Governor to Testify at PREPA Oversight Hearing


WASHINGTON, D.C., July 19, 2018 -

Today, House Natural Resources Committee Chairman Rob Bishop (R-Utah) sent a letter to Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rosselló, inviting him to testify at a July 25 oversight hearing titled Management Crisis at the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority and Implications for Recovery.

“Despite your recognition of the politicization that has plagued PREPA and your commitment towards allowing for independence, the recent departure of PREPA’s governing board are the most recent signs of the utility’s continued dysfunction and a sign that ‘political forces…continue to control PREPA…’

“With continued disfunction at PREPA and the third CEO being named within only a week’s time, the Committee on Natural Resources is interested in hearing from your administration on how you intend to provide for the depoliticization of PREPA and a credible plan for the utility’s transformation that can garner the confidence of the island’s residents, federal taxpayers and future representatives…

“I cordially invite you, or a member of your administration who can provide context to the events of the past week, to testify at this hearing.”
