New Puerto Rico gov suspends contract to rebuild power gridIn one of her first moves as Puerto Rico's new governor, Wanda Vázquez announced late Sunday that she is suspending a pending $ 450,000 contract that is part of the program to rebuild and strengthen the island's power grid, which was destroyed by Hurricane Maria. Puerto Rico's Electric Power Authority, which is more than $ 9 billion in debt, had been expected to sign the contract with Stantec, a consulting firm based in Canada. Vázquez did not explain why she was suspending the deal, saying only that transparency is a priority for her administration.
