Townhall: Today a non-voting representative for Puerto Rico introduced a bill seeking to make the territory a state by 2021. Fourteen Democrats and twenty Republicans are sponsoring the bill but the chances whether the bill will pass is not clear at this time.
Excerpt from Townhall:
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force that would submit a report to Congress and to the president identifying laws that would need to be amended or repealed so Puerto Rico could become a state.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 Rico in the transition to statehood.
