Prosperity Podcast #79: How An Obscure Law Delayed Aid to Puerto Rico

10.06.17 06:08 AM

After Puerto Rico was devastated by Hurricane Maria, much of the aid being sent to the island was delayed. But what caused this delay?*It was caused by an antiquated law called the Jones Act. This*law requires any cargo shipped between two U.S. ports to be shipped on a U.S.-owned, U.S.-made and U.S.-repaired ships. The Jones Act makes goods more expensive and delays relief to areas hit by natural disasters. In this episode, Ed is joined by AFP Vice President of Government Affairs Mac Zimmerman to discuss the details of the Jones Act and if Congress will move to fully repeal the law. *All opinions expressed on this podcast do not necessarily reflect the opinion of Americans for Prosperity.*Subscribe*to the AFP Prosperity Podcast so you donít miss an episode.
