NH's Shaheen urges funding for Northern Border Regional Commission

New Hampshire Sen. Jeanne Shaheen is leading a bipartisan effort of Northeastern senators calling on the Commerce Department to directly fund a new commission to boost the region's economy.

CONCORD, N.H. —

New Hampshire Sen. Jeanne Shaheen is leading a bipartisan effort of Northeastern senators calling on the Commerce Department to directly fund a new commission to boost the region's economy.

The Northern Border Regional Commission would help parts of New Hampshire, Maine, New York, and Vermont strengthen local economies and create jobs.

Under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, the Economic Development Administration is authorized to transfer $50 million to regional economic development commissions. In a letter dated Tuesday, the senators urge the department to allocate as much of that money as possible for the commission.

Sens. Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins from Maine and Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand from New York also signed the letter.
