Shaheen: Funding in bill for Berlin prison

U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen said funding for the federal prison in Berlin was included in legislation approved by the Senate Appropriations Committee.

Shaheen said yesterday that the bill contains funding to finish activating the federal prison, which will bring jobs to northern New Hampshire.

The provisions are in the 2014 Commerce-Justice-Science Appropriations bill which still faces full Senate approval.
