DMO and permitting reform in this week’s legislative agenda

By on March 20, 2017

SAN JUAN – La Fortaleza expects the Legislature to approve a bill creating the destination marketing organization (DMO) this week, while the Senate will be discussing permitting reform, Public Affairs Secretary Ramón Rosario said Monday morning.

Although not physically in the executive mansion as usual, House Speaker Carlos “Johnny” Méndez and Senate President Thomas Rivera Schatz held their weekly meeting with Gov. Ricardo Rosselló over the phone.

They agreed on the approval of the bill to establish the  DMO, or nonprofit entity to promote Puerto Rico as a tourism destination led by the private sector. Meanwhile, the administration’s permitting reform, presented in early February, would be discussed in the upper chamber, Rosario said.

The official also said discussion is expected later this week and early next week on the measure that would consolidate the Fire Department, the Puerto Rico Police, the Institute of Forensic Sciences and 9-1-1 System, among others, under a new Public Security Department.
