U.S. Treasury Secretary Lew and Puerto Rico's Governor Garcia Padilla listen to kindergarden teacher Rivera during their visit to the elementary school Eleonor Roosevelt in San JuanBy Daniel Bases NEW YORK (Reuters) - Investors in Puerto Rico's debt-burdened economy still face risks of default on some of the island's $70 billion in debt even after the U.S. Congress on Wednesday created a powerful federal oversight board to manage credit restructurings. U.S. President Barack Obama says he will quickly sign the Puerto Rico Oversight, Management, and Economic Stability Act (PROMESA) before the U.S. territory faces a possible default on July 1 on $1.9 billion worth of debt payments.
