  • On June 30, 2016, the President signed into law the Puerto Rico Oversight, Management, and Economic Stability Act (“PROMESA”)
  • PROMESA establishes a financial oversight and management board for Puerto Rico only
  • PROMESA defines a “territory” as (A) Puerto Rico, (B) Guam, (C) American Samoa, (D) the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, and (E) the United States Virgin Islands
  • The stated purpose of an oversight board is to “provide a method for a covered territory to achieve fiscal responsibility and access to the capital markets” (at Present, only Puerto Rico is a covered territory)
  • An earlier version of the Congressional bill that became PROMESA included text providing that, except with respect to Puerto Rico, an oversight board “for a territory is established in accordance with this section only if the Legislature of the territory adopts a resolution signed by the Governor requesting the establishment”
    • That provision is not included in the final enacted version of PROMESA

Action by Congress and the President would be required before an oversight board could be established for any territory other than Puerto Rico.
