On this day in 1917, Woodrow Wilson signed the Jones-Shafroth Act making Puerto Ricans US citizens. The Act also began what has become known as the rum “cover over” program where taxes collected on rum made on Puerto Rico is passed along to Puerto Rico for economic development and infrastructure needs. A similar program was begun in 1954 for US Virgin Island rum makers.
