BREAKING: Bill Being Introduced in Congress to Create 51st State

Puerto Rico’s non-voting representative in Congress has announced that she is introducing a bill to start the process of making Puerto Rico a state by the year 2021.

“Resident Commissioner Jenniffer Gonzalez said Wednesday that 14 Democrats and 20 Republicans currently sponsor the bill among the 435 members in the House of Representatives,” according to the Associated Press.

“The bill calls for the creation of a bipartisan, nine-member task force that would submit a report to Congress and to the president identifying laws that would need to be amended or repealed so Puerto Rico could become a state. The panel would also be instructed to recommend temporary economic measures to help the island Puerto Rico in the transition to statehood.”
