Ricky Rossello on Government Reform

 

 


Several officials charged with money laundering & embezzling

The messages were leaked the same week Puerto Rico's former secretary of education, Julia Keleher; former Puerto Rico Health Insurance Administration head Angela Avila-Marrero; and four others with government contracts under Rossello's administration were arrested and charged with 32 counts of money laundering, fraud and other related charges for allegedly embezzling $15.5 million in federal funding from 2017 to 2019.

For statehood & representation for Puerto Rico

Rossello, a scientist and the son of a former governor who also sought statehood for Puerto Rico, argues that barring island residents from voting for president deprives 3.5 million people of their full rights. He also says statehood would boost an economy mired in a decade-long slump, a belief that resonated with many voters.

Streamlines process for businesses into single permit

Rossello signed the Permitting Reform Act to streamline the permitting process for businesses on the island. "A few weeks ago we introduced this bill to continue promoting economic development and reduce government red tape. It is part of our efforts to turn Puerto Rico into an attractive destination for investment," Rossello said. The new law consolidates the process to obtain a permit, certification of fire prevention, environmental health, licenses, and authorizations into a Single Permit.
