PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - Maine’s U.S. senators have joined a push to help intelligence professionals increase their mobility.

Republican Sen. Susan Collins and independent Sen. Angus King want to allow the intelligence workers to deduct some moving expenses from federal taxes.

That privilege is currently extended to active-duty military members.

The senators say the intelligence workers are vital to national security and sometimes must relocate due to a change in assignment.
