Fishermen from the Northeast are thanking two key U.S. senators for including $150 million in fishery disaster assistance in a recent appropriations bill, according to an article in the Portland Press Herald.
The letter from 230 fishermen dated Tuesday, August 27, 2013, was addressed to appropriations committee chair Barbara Mikulski, a Democrat of Maryland, and the committee’s top Republican, Richard Shelby of Alabama.
It thanked them for their “extraordinary work” to include the aid, which is needed after massive cuts in catch limits this year.]
