Politicians demand answers on ‘novel and problematic’ Jones Act waiver

Bipartisan leaders of the US House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure wrote last week to the Secretary of Homeland Security and the Secretary of Transportation to express their concern related to a Jones Act waiver issued by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for the delivery of fuel to Puerto Rico by a foreign vessel.

“We write to express our concerns and disappointment with your recent decision to grant Jones Act waivers for the delivery of fuel to Puerto Rico including to allow the delivery of diesel that was sourced from the mainland United States by British Petroleum Products North America (BPPNA) to Puerto Rico on a foreign vessel on September 28, 2022,” the representatives said.
