Sen. Murkowski Added Fish Disaster Funding to Budget

As the U.S. Senate was developing their budget proposal last week, Senator Lisa Murkowski continued to advocate for funding for federal fishery disasters affecting the state of Alaska…


Sen. Murkowski(R-AK): “This has a dramatic impact on our state’s economy, a dramatic impact on the livelihoods of so many Alaskans, whether they be commercial fisherman, sport fisherman, or subsistence base fisheries. Our fisheries communities those businesses that are depended on our salmon fisheries, these were  all impacted this past year.”

Murkoski cleared the first hurdle, by gaining the votes to have such funding included in the senate’s budget.
