Velazquez on Whitefish Contract Cancellation
Washington, DC - Rep. Nydia M. Velázquez (D-NY) released the following statement regarding news that the Governor of Puerto Rico has called for cancellation of the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority’s contract with Whitefish and started the process of entering “mutual aid” agreements with the states of Florida and New York:
“I am pleased the Governor has taken this necessary step. As I have said previously, my primary concern in all of this is seeing power restored for the people of Puerto Rico.
“We cannot afford further delay in achieving this goal. To that end, going forward, I will be looking closely at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Federal Emergency Management Agency to ensure they are providing appropriate assistance and expertise.”
