Congresswoman Annie Kuster

In the months since #MeToo went viral on social media, millions of people across the globe have broken the silence on their stories of sexual assault and harassment. But where do we stand in New Hampshire? How has the Granite State responded to the Me Too movement? What conversations are we having? What actions are we taking?

We talk with Congresswoman Ann McLane Kuster about the efforts of the Bipartisan Heroin Task Force to increase funding to fight the opioid epidemic.  The new federal budget deal passed last week includes $6 billion in funding for opioid abuse and mental health treatment.  We discuss how much N.H. might receive, who decides, and how it would be spent.

Kuster Calls for Funding for Northern Border Program

Feb 11, 2018

 New Hampshire Congresswoman Annie Kuster is urging that a commission that helps with economic development in northern New England and New York receive funding in the upcoming Farm Bill.

Kuster, a Democrat on the House Agriculture Committee, questioned Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue about the Northern Border Regional Commission last week. She introduced a bill last year that would extend its reauthorization for five years. The Trump administration proposed eliminating funding.
