- 10/24 - Whitefish Energy, a Montana-based company, signed a $300 million contract with the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority (PREPA) to repair and reconstruct large portions of Puerto Rico to help bring electricity back. Many experts have concerns with this partnership because the company is only two years old and only had two full-time employees when Hurricane Maria hit in September. The company also has ties to the Trump Administration through Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke. Whitefish is based in Whitefish, MT, Zinke’s hometown.  The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers says almost 80 percent of the power grid is damaged and 80 percent of Puerto Ricans still do not have power.
Actions Taken by the Governments of the Territories
Legislation that Supports Equity and Justice
- 10/16 20 National Guard soldiers were sent to the U.S. Virgin islands to help with Hurricane Maria relief efforts.
- 10/12 The House of Representatives on Thursday passed legislation that would give $36.5 billion in disaster relief for victims of recent hurricanes and wildfires, as well as emergency credit to help Puerto Rico keep its government functioning However it is estimated that Puerto Rico will need as much as $95 million to rebuild.
- 7/28 The Trump Administration temporarily waived The Jones Act, a law that requires any goods shipped between points in the United States be carried in ships built, owned and (mostly) operated by Americans. By waiving the law, it is easier to get ships with food and supplies to Puerto Rico to help with Hurricane Maria relief.
