Quotes

...what I've seen so far, the FDA really listened to us on a number of issues, like water testing and using manure to fertilize crops," Pingree said. "and they definitely got the message on spent grains and backed away from rules that would have made it impossible for craft brewers and distillers here in maine to give their byproducts to dairy farmers."
...stranded on beaches or trapped in shallow water, we depend on having well-trained people who can respond quickly and appropriately," said Pingree. "two maine organizations are doing fantastic work in coordinating responses for hundreds of animals a year. they've done a great job recruiting volunteers and raising private funds, but the federal government has an obligation to provide support. i'm so glad the organizations will receive these grants to help continue their very important work."
...With funding being distributed to so many different small businesses, this valuable investment will have a wide impact," said Pingree. "my congratulations and appreciation go to midcoast council of governments for leading this important program."
