NMI businesses get $100k for export aid

Marianas small businesses will get help exporting their products and services using $100,000 in federal funds awarded to the CNMI Department of Commerce. The Marianas became eligible for this funding as a result of a statutory change I added to the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2013. Prior to that change, the Marianas was not eligible to compete for State Trade Expansion Program (STEP) grant funds. Congratulations to the Department of Commerce.
