Congresswoman Shea-Porter - Shea-Porter Statement on Annual District Work Period

“I am looking forward to the Annual District Work Period.  I know that New Hampshire’s families and small businesses are struggling with the economic downturn and high gas prices, and I plan to hear their concerns and share what I have been doing in Washington to address these problems.  I have a full work agenda and will be meeting with a wide range of constituents, including government officials, small business owners, veterans, seniors, and students.  I also expect to hold a Congressional Field Hearing to explore the challenges New Hampshire veterans face because New Hampshire is the only state in the country where the VA does not offer either a full service hospital or equivalent services in-state.”
