U.S. Senator Benjamin L. Cardin (D-MD) today commended the Senate for passing the Agricultural Appropriations Conference Report, which included his request of $550,000 for the Appalachian Center for Ethnobotanical Studies (ACES) at Frostburg University. The Conference Report has passed the House and will now go to the President for his signature.
“Frostburg State University’s Ethnobotanical Center will help bring economic development to Allegany County and it also will build our scientific knowledge of important plants and how they affect our health and well being,” said
Senator Cardin, a member of the Senate Budget Committee.
