Collins Talks to Bumble Bee 

Senator Susan Collins met with the CEO of Bumble Bee Tuesday to talk about finding another use for the Prospect Harbor sardine cannery.Bumble Bee announced last month the plant will close in April, putting nearly 130 people out of work.Collins says she’ll be working closely with officials from the company to help find a new use for the facility.She says there are a few prospects, but said the most promising appears to be the idea of converting it into a lobster processing plant, which would help preserve about 100 jobs.The plant is the last remaining sardine cannery in the U.S. It’s been in operation for more than 100 years.
