MS Eben Adams and John Veroneau, 1987-1996, 9 boxes.

John Veroneau handled agriculture, trade, fisheries, and fiscal issues from 1989 to January, 1994, at which time he became legislative director for the Cohen office. Many of these issues were then turned over to Eben Adams, who worked with Senator Cohen from 1992-1996.

Files are arranged alphabetically, and they cover topics such as groundfish restoration, seafood inspection, and fisheries management. The Consumer Seafood Safety Act of 1992 (S. 2538); the Groundfish Restoration Act of 1992 (H.R. 2919); and the Gulf of Maine Act of 1994 (S. 2241) are some of the significant legislative initiatives mentioned in this category. The Gulf of Maine Act, introduced by Senator George Mitchell, sought to establish a Gulf of Maine Council that would promote the environmental and economic health of the Gulf of Maine.

Access to some of the records in this sub series is restricted until 2017. Consult the Special Collections Department for further information.
