"When you talk to people in puerto rico on the hill the name that often comes up is a congresswoman nydia velazquez and she's a puerto rican native she's a congresswoman from new york and it's been very involved in these issues for years now kinda taking a lead in the past with puerto rico's financial situation often and in this case from what i've heard from people that she's been very involved particularly in the house in traveling down there talking to puerto rican officials being involved in making sure that fema is doing the best it's can but as you mentioned they still do not have their presentation that other states have and so when you look at something like texas where senator john cornyn was a huge advocate for getting relief after hurricane harvey and senator john cornyn who's the majority whip yes senate extremely powerful he held up nominations in the senate to make sure they got the money that they that he thought they deserved and that's a to puerto rico doesn't have so marco rubio and other republicans who have advocated for puerto rico it's it's not the same as them actually having representation it isn't and you know they do the best they can probably but it's you know it's different when you have other constituents across your state that have other priorities versus if you had a senator from puerto rico whose main priority for months on end was holding fema in the federal government's feet to the fire on this you know that's just a different amount of pressure put on washington was there anything shocking the you found in the course of reporting.
