March 11 Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rossello's
revised blueprint for steering the U.S. territory out of
economic crisis identifies an extra $262 million in new
revenues, the governor's office announced on Saturday.
An earlier version of the plan envisioned $12.9 billion in
new revenues over 10 years, but was rejected by Puerto Rico's
federally-appointed oversight board, which must approve a
turnaround plan for the island under the federal Puerto Rico
rescue law known as PROMESA. The draft relied on overly
optimistic forecasts for economic growth, the board said.
