Mainers are resilient. Along with the rest of the country, however, too many Mainers continue to struggle in this tough economy.

Senators Collins And King Congratulate Loyal Biscuit Co., 2015 Winner Of The State Small Business Award

Washington, DC: U.S. Senators Susan Collins and Angus King congratulated the Loyal Biscuit Co., a small business in Maine, on their selection as the State Small Business Award Winner of 2015.

“40 Hours Is Full Time”

Effective health care reform should provide Americans with access to quality and affordable care while also encouraging economic growth.

“Connecting Workers With Available Jobs”

We must continue working together to identify ways to improve job training initiatives to help people find jobs in fields where jobs exist.
