Puerto Rico Status Resolution Act
To set forth the process for Puerto Rico to be admitted as a State of the Union.
Puerto Rico Status Resolution Act - Authorizes the State Elections Commission of Puerto Rico to provide for a ratification vote on the admission of Puerto Rico as a state of the United States on an equal footing with the several states in all respects. Requires (if a majority of votes cast in the ratification vote are for the admission of Puerto Rico as a state): (1) the President to submit to Congress legislation to admit Puerto Rico as a state, and (2) Congress to act, through legislation, to admit Puerto Rico as a state.
Porter Rico‘s lack of statehood is unconscionable. Their lives are being regulated by the government in which they have no say. We could all be learning from their experiences and mistakes as an active part of our government. Please vote to support Puerto Rican statehood.
