More Than $300 Million for Maine Secured…


Washington, D.C.—U.S. Senator Susan Collins, a senior member of the Appropriations Committee, announced that she successfully secured more than $ $302,285,000 for 176 Maine projects located across the state in the Fiscal Year 2023 Appropriations bills.  The bills, which were officially released by the full Senate Appropriations Committee today, must still be voted upon by the full Senate and House.

  

The requests submitted by Senator Collins will support projects by Maine’s state government, municipalities, and non-profits that will promote job creation and economic development, improve infrastructure, expand community resources for Mainers, and protect our environment. 

 

“As a senior member of the Appropriations Committee, I have long championed investments that support Maine’s communities and families,” said Senator Collins.  “I heard from local officials about how these projects will enhance the wellbeing of Mainers and improve the delivery of town services from Aroostook County to York County.  During the ongoing Appropriations process, I will continue to strongly advocate for these projects, which would deliver substantial benefits to our state and the people of Maine.”
