Little chance of federal budget funds for caldera restoration After years of effort and billions of taxpayer dollars, the federal government will not spend a penny to help restore Calera, a mountain of rock and ash left by Hurricane Katrina in 2010, says Steve McDaniel, chief administrator of San Juan, Puerto Rico’s largest municipal government. The only federal dollars that will help the U.S. https://www.custodia4cover.it/products/chicago-white-sox-new-mlb-cover-iphone-6-6s territory recover are the U.S. military and Puerto Rico National Guard, McDaniel said. Officials say recovery of the Calera Mountain is the only way to restore Puerto Rico’s power, water and rail system to full efficiency. https://www.custodia4cover.it/products/coque-custodia-cover-fundas-iphone-11-pro-max-5-6-7-8-plus-x-xs-xr-se2020-c15228-corona-beer-1-iphone-xs-max-case But they say the work will take years, and they are waiting for funding to allow them to make a definitive decision about what steps the federal government will take. https://www.cifnet.it/products/cover-samsung-j3-2016-stitch-8custodia4cover1909 “We’re definitely waiting for some kind of federal funding. We can’t wait until they come,” said Rep. Brad Sherman (D-Calif.) President Obama says he will have more details on Puerto Rico’s federal recovery funds in June. https://www.custodia4cover.it/products/captain-marvel-p0582-coque-iphone-x-xs-1coversxxsiphone12627 But for now, that is all that has been set in motion by Congress. https://www.cifnet.it/products/cheshire-cat-quote-wallpaper-y0451-cover-iphone-7-iphone-8-1covers8samsung12447 “The Puerto Rico National Guard has been working on Puerto Rico’s power grid, and our recovery process has been pretty consistent for the last four or five years — it can’t be fix영양출장샵ed without going to Congress,” said Rep. https://www.custodia4cover.it/products/sonic-the-hedgehog-2-cover-iphone-7 Peter Roskam (R-Ill.), chairm충주출장마사지an of the House subcommittee on national reconstruction. https://www.custodia4cover.it/products/coque-custodia-cover-fundas-iphone-11-pro-max-5-6-7-8-plus-x-xs-xr-se2020-c13313-caterpillar-3-iphone-11-pro-case “Our money is c화천안마oming through, and it’s up to Puerto Rico now to act in order to help the people of Puerto Rico recover and maintain their normal life.” Puerto Rico’s federal recovery assistance has included $2.8 billion for power plants and $1.4 billion to the federal housing authority, McDaniel said. He said that has been an annual commitment in addition to about $150 million allocated each year in the past to help pay for the cost of rehabilitation projects along the Calera trail. On Tuesday, after more than 100 days without power, Puerto Rico was ready to receive the rest of the $8.5 billion Congress said it would give the island by June 15. The next federal spending authorization bill is set to receive approval on March 22, and if it passes, a House leadership aide predicted that the island would be able to begin receiving federal funds by July.
