Hoyer Statement on Puerto Rican Officials Misusing Federal Funds

WASHINGTON, DC - House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer (MD) released the following statement today regarding reports that senior Puerto Rican officials misused federal funds: 

“I was outraged to learn that officials in Puerto Rico fraudulently awarded federal money to well-connected contractors. These charges are serious, and there must be a thorough investigation. The people of Puerto Rico have suffered for two years following deadly storms, and nothing in these new developments ought to jeopardize recovery efforts and the continued provision of much-needed aid to the people of the island. They deserve accountability, and anyone guilty of wrongdoing should be held responsible. I will continue working with Chairman Grijalva, Reps. Velazquez, Serrano, Soto, and Ocasio-Cortez, and other advocates for Puerto Rico in Congress to ensure that recovery aid reaches those who need it.”
