The Independence party submitted to the Resources Committee of the U.S. House of Representatives the definition of independence to be included in the Young Bill. They propose a definition of Independence as an alternative to the modality of Puerto Rican Sovereignty.

It exposes a straightforward declaration as to the nature of independence and its inherent legal consequences. The definition presents the "relation between both nations after independence and elicits from the present Congress a policy statement as to crucial economic trade and free transit issues", said Senator Ruben Barr̀os, President of the Puerto Rican Independence Party.
