WASHINGTON, D.C. –  On Tuesday, U.S. Rep. Michael Waltz (R-Fla.) co-sponsored a bill to make Puerto Rico the 51st state.

H.R. 4901, the Puerto Rico Statehood Admission Act, would require a Statehood Yes-No vote by both the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate for the island. This is the same precedent established for the admission process of Alaska and Hawaii.

“Following the longest government shutdown in U.S. history, it’s clear to me we need to create stronger incentives for more Members of Congress to come to the table and do the job the American people sent them here to do,” Waltz said. “What federal workers and servicemembers in our Coast Guard were put through this past month was unacceptable. This bipartisan legislation would motivate Members of Congress to be part of finding a solution in a timely manner.”
