Senator Stabenow Announces Support for Baraga Police Department to Buy New Police CarThursday, May 21, 2015
U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow, Ranking Member of the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry, today announced support for the Baraga Police Department in Baraga County. This funding comes through the USDA's Rural Development Economic Impact Initiative Grant program, which funds critical infrastructure in rural communities across the country. The $18,750 grant will be used to help the community purchase a new police vehicle.
"Police officers have to cover many miles to protect our families, homes, and communities," said Stabenow. "This new police car for Baraga will help make sure there is always someone there to quickly respond in an emergency."
Senator Stabenow is Ranking Member of the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry, which oversees the USDA and its Rural Development program.
