Turmoil Slows Rebuilding of Puerto Rico's Power Grid
Ten months after Hurricane Maria destroyed Puerto Rico's electric grid, the agency responsible for rebuilding it is in chaos and more than $1 billion in federal funds meant to strengthen the system before the next hurricane is going unspent

BY MICHAEL WEISSENSTEIN and DANICA COTO, Associated Press


...The Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority has seen two chief executive officers and four board members resign in less than a week in a messy fight over how much the bankrupt agency should pay its CEO. The agency's fourth CEO since the hurricane lasted less than 24 hours on the job last week before resigning amid public outrage over his $750,000 salary.

Ten months after Hurricane Maria destroyed Puerto Rico’s electric grid, the local agency responsible for rebuilding it is in chaos and more than $1 billion in federal funds meant to strengthen the rickety grid is going unspent, according to contractors and U.S. officials who say they’re eager to make progress before the next hurricane.

...Puerto Rico Rep. Juan Morales, president of the House's health commission, told The Associated Press that he is verifying the institute's claim that none of the bodies were victims of Hurricane Maria last September. He said that is one reason he requested a copy of the inventory of corpses, adding that it lacks key details, including where exactly the bodies are being held.

Its time for them to make up their minds to either stay in the US and be productive or go back to Puerto Rico and rebuild. either way they should be moved out of hotels and if they are staying apply for benefits if they are needed. That includes the ones that came to the Dominican Republic.
