Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rosselló is in Washington on Thursday as the Senate mulls another hurricane relief package after the House passed a $36.5 billion measure last week. 

Rosselló will meet President Donald Trump at the White House later this morning but his first stop of the day was with Sen. Marco Rubio. Rosselló also met with Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski on Thursday morning. 

"Our call is for Congress to take strong action so that we can have the resources appropriate to work with the U.S. citizens in Texas, U.S. citizens in Florida, U.S. citizens in the U.S. Virgin Islands and U.S. citizens in Puerto Rico," Rosselló said. "In these emergencies things might have the appearance that they are stabilizing at one point but you always have future problems that can arise like public health emergencies. We need equal treatment."
