 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.
