Puerto Rico’s Resident Commissioner in Washington, Jenniffer González, is like the godmother of the Opportunity Zones in U.S. Congress. She claims as her achievement that the island was included in said investors’ exemption program, which is part of President Donald Trump’s tax reform. While states can only designate 25% of their census areas below the poverty level as an Opportunity Zone, “almost 94%” of Puerto Rico was designated as that category, according to the Commissioner. González was not alone in her endeavor. There were other players in Congress promoting the Opportunity Zones for the island.
