My goal in Congress is to be as transparent as possible, and that includes sharing the real truth about the bills and proposals being promoted in Washington. Often times, there is more than meets the eye on many of the ideas coming from the federal government, which is why I am setting the record straight. Below you will find helpful fact sheets that dispel some of the biggest myths being pushed in the legislative ideas and national proposals.
America’s veterans have put so much on the line to defend our great Nation and safeguard our freedoms. As the mother of an active-duty Marine officer, I understand the sacrifices that are made by our servicemembers and their families each day. That’s why one of my top priorities in Congress is to ensure every American servicemember and veteran is well-equipped and properly supported, whether they are serving actively or returning to civilian life.
Every month I will be holding virtual seminars for residents of New York's 22nd Congressional District, local elected officials, and other interested stakeholders to receive updates and information directly from federal agencies and offices in Washington and around the country. There are so many existing federal resources and programs available to our community and I am committed to making sure you have the information to fully utilize them. Below you will find an archive of seminars from previous months.
The agriculture industry is the backbone of our region and has driven our economy for generations. The 22nd District is home to over 4,300 farms and 7,400 producers. These enterprises are engines of our Upstate economy that provide jobs to local workers and fill our groceries and schools with nutritious local products. As you know, farms are also family-run businesses. 94% of the farms in the 22nd Congressional District are family owned and operated.
