Assemblymember Marcos Crespo said, “The ongoing situation in Puerto Rico is unlike anything this country has experienced, and the failure of the federal government to lend critical support to our fellow citizens has been a disgrace. The leadership Governor Cuomo has shown since day one is exactly what our brothers and sisters need to recover and rebuild. By launching this next phase, New York is sending a clear message to the world that we remain committed to transforming the island and rebuilding communities to endure future storms, and that together we can rebuild Puerto Rico stronger and more resilient than ever before.”
