This petition had 1,076 supporters

By repealing the Jones Act of 1920 in Puerto Rico , it would help the island to trade more and pay less on imports . As of now all items imported to the island have to reach U.S. main land first . All containers have to be transported from foreign ship to an American ship adding cost to the people of Puerto Rico . The repeal will help the island pay some of it debt faster. Because of this said Act , ship wanting to help from other countries had to wait for permission to enter Puerto Rico port putting lives at risk . The time has come to end this strangle hold on the Puerto Rican economy.
