SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico – Puerto Rico has released a new proposal to restructure part of its $70 billion debt to buy time and implement a fiscal growth plan.
The plan released Monday calls for issuing up to $28 billion in new bonds that would allow creditors to be paid regardless of future economic growth rates. The government says the deal would allow Puerto Rico to cut $12 billion to $16 billion from its debt load.
