“The benefits contained in the recent federal laws passed regarding coronavirus are drafted in a dense and technical way. It is my intention to break down that barrier and that our people know how these provisions apply to the island and how they can benefit from them. That is why I continue to coordinate these digital workshops, with those who will execute these laws, the representatives and even heads of state and federal agencies so that the people have direct contact with them and doubts can be clarified. These laws are to help everyone cope with the consequences of this pandemic, it is my intention that all the people benefit from them,” said the resident commissioner.
