From U.S. Rep. Carol Shea-Porter's (D-NH) office:
Today, Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter announced that she has been appointed to two subcommittees on the Natural Resources Committee: the Subcommittee on Insular Affairs, Oceans, and Wildlife, and the Subcommittee on National Parks, Forests, and Public Lands.
“I wanted to serve on these two important subcommittees so I can help protect New Hampshire and the nation’s natural resources,” said Congresswoman Shea-Porter.
The Insular Affairs, Oceans, and Wildlife Subcommittee has jurisdiction over the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and Fish and Wildlife Programs. Congresswoman Shea-Porter will focus on protecting New Hampshire's maritime treasures and shoreline. As a member of the National Parks, Forest, and Public Lands Subcommittee, Shea-Porter will help protect public lands and national forests, including the White Mountain National Forest.
