“New Hampshire’s fishing industry has suffered devastating losses due to declining fish populations and strict federal regulations, and I’m glad the federal government is providing much-needed assistance for this vital New Hampshire industry. We must ensure our fisheries have the resources they need to recover and thrive, and I urge NOAA to release all remaining disaster-assistance funds to New Hampshire, so we can continue to support the economic success of Granite State fishermen.”


Leadership: Representative Ann McLane Kuster was born and raised in Concord, New Hampshire. Congresswoman Kuster’s late mother was former State Senator Susan McLane, a pioneer for women in New Hampshire politics. Her late father, Malcolm McLane, was Mayor of Concord, a New Hampshire Executive Councilor, and one of the state’s most prominent attorneys for over 50 years. As a longtime community activist, author, attorney, and advocate, Congresswoman Kuster has focused her career on increasing access to affordable health care and higher education for families. She has been involved in a number of significant environmental policy issues, including supporting programs that create and maintain a nationwide legacy of high quality recreation areas, lakes, and facilities while stimulating non-federal investments in the protection of recreation resources across the United States.
