She took a trip to check out the recovery efforts on the island that was badly damaged from Hurricane Maria over the summer.

“They are moving along with the physical side of rebuilding infrastructure. They understand the shortcomings that they have. They are very concerned with what resources they will be able to get in order to plan and build for the long-term,” Rep. DeLauro stated. “Not to patch a bridge here or there or do stuff with Band-Aids, but to look at Puerto Rico and a future development.”Related Content: 4 months after Maria, 450K residents of Puerto Rico still without power
