Today: Rick Scott makes 6th post-Hurricane Maria trip to Puerto Rico

May 31, 2018

Florida Gov. Rick Scott will travel to Puerto Rico today — his sixth visit since Hurricane Maria ripped through the island in September and killed an estimated 4,645 people.

The governor’s office said late Wednesday that Scott was invited by Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rosselló “to continue to offer guidance, advice and assistance regarding ongoing Hurricane Maria recovery efforts.”

Scott is scheduled to meet with Rosselló, Speaker of the House Carlos Johnny Méndez and Lt. Gov. and Secretary of State Luis G. Rivera-Marin.
