Puerto Rico legislation passes Senate

The U.S. Senate just invoked cloture on the PROMESA legislation that will permit Puerto Rico to begin restructuring its debt. The bill is not perfect, but it was the best, indeed the only, option at this time if we are to begin addressing the humanitarian crisis on the island. Kudos to JubileeUSA which led the effort to draft and pass the bill, and to Archbishop Roberto Gonzalez of San Juan and Rev. Heriberto Rivera of the Puerto Rico Bible Society for their leadership.
