The debt that the Capitol has for services that were not paid in the past four years is in the millions. Just the Aqueduct and Sewerage Authority (AAA), is owed $829,412.90 for providing water service.
This was revealed on Thursday by the president of the House of Representatives, Rafael “Tatito” Hernández Montañez, who also pointed out that the debt to be paid to the Electric Power Authority (PREPA) is $2,897,492.20.
Hernández Montañez asserted that since he did not have the budget to pay all the debt, he asked the AAA and PREPA to establish an ordinary payment plan from July onwards that includes the payment of the debt so as to not be left without both services.
“Our concern is that we start to work in the Legislative Assembly and then they cut off the water and electricity. That would not be acceptable,” he added.
He explained that “the Electric Power Authority notified us that no payments have been received in the past four years,” he said.
