I agree that Puerto Rico’s citizen’s have a right to petition for statehood and the representation that entails. I also believe a planned transition to statehood should be engaged, if that is what the country desires. I have been through several integration efforts just within companies, and it takes years to align systems, policies, and technologies. Imagine how long it would take to transition a country to a state! The time frame provided in this bill strikes me as too short to accomplish all that is needed. The resources of the US are already consumed by three hurricanes before dealing with the territory’s debt. The US cannot recover from this in just over 2 years. I could agree with this bill if the timetable were more realistic.
