At first glance, Walorski and I aren’t natural political allies. She’s a Republican from Indiana. I’m a Democrat from New Hampshire. We disagree on a whole host of issues. But during an orientation session for incoming members of Congress, she and I discovered a shared passion for addressing the epidemic of sexual assault in the military – and we decided to do something about it.

Seventy-five members of Congress are asking the Food and Drug Administration to allow further comment on sweeping food safety rules that farmers say could drive them out of business. The group sent a letter Monday asking the agency to propose a second set of rules to implement the 2011 Food Safety Modernization Act, which would require farmers to take new precautions against contamination. New England farmers have argued that many aspects of the rules were derived from large-scale practices that don’t apply to the region’s smaller farms.

Kuster has made job growth a priority. And in New Hampshire, craft beer is one fast growing area of the state’s economy. She is co-sponsoring a bill, called the Small BREW Act, that would cut the federal excise tax in half for small breweries across the nation. The proposal would save more than $1,000 a year for a place like Seven Barrel. It doesn’t sound like a lot, but consider that small businesses generally don’t have a lot of discretionary money for things like marketing or advertising. The money could help Seven Barrel cover some of the expense of recent upgrades, Lubold said, or go toward a pay bump for staff.
