Shaheen fights to keep $150M for fishing industry in hurricane relief bill

Republican Sens. John McCain and Tom Coburn have signaled an effort to strip from a $60.4 billion Hurricane Sandy disaster relief bill today the $150 million targeted for fisheries disaster funding — the bulk of which would go to the five coastal New England states and New York whose fishermen work the Atlantic for groundfish. Joining Kerry in urging the Senate to reject the Coburn-McCain amendment were Democratic Sens. Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire, Mark Begich of Alaska, Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island, and Barbara Mikulski, who chairs the Senate Appropriations Committee that added the fisheries relief to the Sandy Bill.
