Plattsburgh, N.Y. – Today, Congresswoman Elise Stefanik (R-NY-21) pressed the need for stronger economic growth and good paying jobs for North Country citizens at an Industry and International Business Roundtable in Plattsburgh. Congresswoman Stefanik previewed business stops throughout Plattsburgh that she would be making over the course of the day, including at the Georgia Pacific Plattsburgh Tissue Plant, Plattsburgh Airport, Bombardier, and Swarovski Lighting

“Promoting economic growth and helping get North Country families back to work is my top priority in Congress,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “I was pleased to have the opportunity to speak with so many business owners and job creators today. We had great conversations about what I’ve been working on so far this year, as well as what they want to see from the federal government so they can grow their businesses and hire more workers.”

This Congress, the House has passed several job creating initiatives with Congresswoman Stefanik’s support, including:

  • H.R. 37 -- Promoting Job Creation and Reducing Small Business Burdens Act
  • H.R. 427 -- the Regulations from the Executive in Need of Scrutiny (REINS) Act
  • H.R. 636 – America’s Small Business Tax Relief Act
  • H.R. 3 – Keystone XL Pipeline Act
  • H.R. 30 – Save American Workers Act
  • H.R. 527 – Small Business Regulatory Flexibility Improvements Act

Congresswoman Stefanik is working to create an environment that is pro-job creation and pro-economic development and continues to be a strong advocate for comprehensive tax reform to grow our economy by making our tax code flatter, fairer and simpler.
