Colossal statue in Puerto Rico could find a new home

AP, SAN JUAN, PUERTO RICO

Legislator David Bonilla said he will keep pushing for the statue to be erected in Desecheo.

It would provide an economic boost for Puerto Rico’s western region, said Bonilla, who envisions pictures, T-shirt sales and even helicopter rides linked to the statue.

He dismissed concerns that the permit process to move the statue to Arecibo is nearly complete.

“Everything is negotiable,” he said. “It all depends on the effort that is made.”
