Puerto Rico's Recovery hindered by Government Funds being spent on the Mainland rather than in Puerto Rico.

Excellent article quickly explains the appreciated but somewhat muted impact that occurs when US Government funds are not spent in Puerto Rico to help Puerto Rico recover from Hurricane Maria more quickly or effectively. Instead, U.S. Funding is spent on the U.S. mainland to provide goods and services destined for Puerto Rico. I don't speak for Puerto Rico and I would imagine the help is much apprecaited, however the overall effect is somewhat muted if the funds are not spent in Puerto Rico.

This is the exact reason why RicoAmerica was conceived. I am on LinkedIn hoping to connect with Puerto Rico Decision Makers.

New York Power Authority continues to work with Puerto Rico on Power Grid Improvements.

The New York Power Authority continues to work with Puerto Rico on not only establishing power to the Island's residents, but also on rebuilding the power grid so that it can withstand future storms. A lot of work lies ahead but progress is being made.

Congratulations Puerto Rico, Today, September 23, 2018 is the 150th Anniversary of your first revolt and demand for independence from Spain.

Kind of a big deal and I hope it gets some coverage in the United States, 150 years is such a round number and well worth acknowledging when it comes to the first protest Puerto Rico held to become Independent of Spain.
