We are now over two months removed from when Hurricane Irma devastated St. Thomas and St. John on September 6, and it has been nearly 60 days since Hurricane Maria hit St. Croix and Puerto Rico. It was just a little over a week ago that Senator Cassidy, Senator Franken and I, along with Senator Carper, who was just here, and Senator Harris as well as some of our House colleagues, visited both St. Thomas and Puerto Rico." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Ricardo Rossello Nevares, Bruce J. Walker, Ed Jackson, Ricardo Ramos, Julio A.
