Leader Pelosi Introduces Bill to Stop Puerto Rico Debt Lawsuits

Jubilee USA

WASHINGTON - House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi introduced a bill to temporarily shield Puerto Rico from lawsuits related to its $72 billion debt. Pelosi noted the bill would apply through March 31, the date Speaker Paul Ryan set as a deadline for the House to address the island's economic crisis.

"Leader Pelosi's bill makes a lot of sense and works with Speaker Ryan's deadline," stated Eric LeCompte, the head of the religious development organization Jubilee USA. "Congress should protect Puerto Rico from harmful lawsuits."
