KENNEDY STATEMENT ON RED TIDE DISASTER DECLARATION

In response to the announcement today by Secretary Carlos Gutierrez that shellfish closures due to red tide in the waters off of Massachusetts, Maine and New Hampshire caused a commercial fishing failure, Melissa Wagoner, spokeswoman for Senator Kennedy, released the following statement.

"Senator Kennedy is delighted that Massachusetts shellfishermen will be receiving much-needed relief for the losses they suffered because of the massive red tide disaster earlier this year. He commends the Bush Administration for issuing the disaster declaration and Governor Patrick for his leadership in seeking the declaration, which Senator Kennedy and the Massachusetts Congressional Delegation strongly supported."
