Not only does the Capitol have a great debt with the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority (PREPA), this is joined by other government agencies and various city halls on the island, as confirmed today by an agency official.
In a radio interview (Noti Uno 630), the director of customer service Noriette Figueroa indicated that between government corporations, municipalities and the Capitol they have a debt of $ 245 million with PREPA.
“The government debt with Electric Power is close to $ 245 million dollars,” the official said in the interview.
Yesterday the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rafael “Tatito” Hernández, stated that the Capitol Superintendency did not pay for the electricity service for the past four years.
The new chamber leader indicated that he will need to make a payment plan to cover this debt that, according to him, exceeds $ 2 million.
