“Some valuable information today about Puerto Rico’s relief efforts “In speaking with my congresswoman today she told me it is important for people to ask their legislators to do the following to help Puerto Rico:
Call your members of Congress and ask them to:
- Suspend the Jones Act just as was done for FL & TX & allow foreign relief vessels into Puerto Rico.
- Send immediate and massive aid beginning with helicopters to rescue people in areas that are cut off & including cell towers to aid in communications for residents & relief workers
- Pass bankruptcy relief legislation & negotiate public debt relief immediately
- Pass a major reconstruction bill that includes solar energy & other sustainable technology that will save millions in the long run. Unless massive emergency relief arrives soon, cholera will spread, and the very young, the elderly, & the infirm will fall ill & the death toll will climb. Please call now.”
