Puerto Rico’s Trouble With Mutual Aid from States

From Bloonberg News: States’ Aid to Puerto Rico Delayed by Slow Request, Money Woes.

“There were some concerns” about Puerto Rico’s ability to repay the states, said Mike Sprayberry, president of the National Emergency Management Association, a group of state disaster-response coordinators. It runs the Emergency Management Assistance Compact, which coordinates most state-to-state assistance.

Puerto Rico was slower than Texas or Florida to make its first formal request to EMAC for help from other states.
