Puerto Rico & the House Natural Resources Committee
UCTP Taino News - On Tuesday, the Committee on Natural Resources will meet in open markup session to consider H.R. 900, the Puerto Rico Democracy Act of 2007. The legislation would provide for a federally sanctioned self-determination process for the people of Puerto Rico by directing the Puerto Rico State Elections Commission to conduct a plebiscite during the 111th Congress. The plebiscite would give voters the option to vote for continued U.S. territorial status or for a path toward a constitutionally viable permanent nonterritorial status.
