Lawmakers Propose New Vote To Change Puerto Rico’s Status

A group of mostly Democratic members of Congress has crafted a bill to change the status of Puerto Rico. The plan, announced by lawmakers led by House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD), is called the Puerto Rico Status Act. The Act would set a process that would see a change in Puerto Rico’s status, either leading to statehood or further autonomy or even independence for the island, which has been a territory of the United States since 1898.
