Kennebec Journal: A budget bill that will go to the Senate floor for consideration would provide $150 million in disaster relief funding to New England’s groundfish industry and several other fisheries.
U.S. Sens. Susan Collins of Maine and Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire succeeded in adding the funding to a fiscal year 2014 appropriations bill for commerce, justice and science programs.
