--House Minority Leader: PR Bill Imperfect But Needed
--Rep Pelosi: 'Feel Pretty Good' About Fate of PR Bill
--House Speaker Ryan Makes Case For PR Bill
WASHINGTON (MNI) - U.S. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Thursday
she's "hopeful" the House will pass later in the day legislation to ease the
financial crisis in Puerto Rico.
At a briefing, Pelosi said the Puerto Rico bill is imperfect, but still
worthy of support.
"I feel pretty good about its passage," she said.
The bill would create a powerful seven-member federal oversight board that
would oversee Puerto Rico's fiscal affairs and guide the island through a court
supervised process of debt reduction.
