Carol Shea-Porter Statement about Operation Streetsweeper

WASHINGTON - Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter released the following statement about the drug and crime prevention program, Operation Streetsweeper.

"Operation Streetsweeper and other drug and crime prevention programs are critical to keeping our streets safe.

This program has not been cut -- the 2008 funding process has not even started.

I called Senator Gregg last night. He was the first person to ask for my help. I assured him that I will do whatever I can to support this program. Cooperation will be the key."
