Puerto Rico fears GOP tax bill will be 'another storm'

  • Aired: 12/19/2017

  • Rating: NR
Under the GOP tax plan, Puerto Rico is treated in some ways as a foreign entity, not a U.S. territory. Local officials warn that one provision could drive out drugmakers and manufacturers, at a time when a third of the island is still without power in the wake of Hurricane Maria. Jeffrey Brown talks to Carlos Mercader, spokesman for the governor of Puerto Rico, about how the bill will affect jobs.
