As a member of the powerful Senate Appropriations Committee and the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, I hold key positions in Congress that oversee and shape national security issues of importance to both Maine and the United States.  I have successfully secured provisions in annual defense authorization and funding bills that support work at Bath Iron Works, Portsmouth Naval Shipyard, the University of Maine, Saco Defense, Pratt & Whitney, and other companies that are vital to Maine's economy.
