U.S. Sen. Durbin cites problems with House Puerto Rico debt bill

WASHINGTON, May 24 (Reuters) - U.S. Senator Dick Durbin, the second-ranking Democrat, on Tuesday expressed deep reservations with a Puerto Rico debt relief bill being debated by a House of Representatives panel this week.

"I want to see the final product. The initial draft, I have some real problems with it," Durbin told reporters. He added that some other Democrats also have expressed strong reservations with the measure.
