Washington, D.C. – Today, Congresswoman Elise Stefanik (R-NY-21) promoted Small Business Week in the North Country with visits at Green Goddess Natural Market and High Peaks Cyclery in Lake Placid.

“I grew up in a small business family and know how critical these institutions are for our communities,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “Small business week is a great opportunity to visit our local small business and I encourage all North Country families to ‘shop small’ at local businesses like Green Goddess and High Peaks Cyclery. I will continue to work in Congress on smart policies to help our small businesses thrive.”

Congresswoman Stefanik is working in Congress to achieve comprehensive tax and regulatory reform. Last year she helped the House pass the REINS Act that would rein in the out of control federal rule making process and help make it easier for businesses to grow. At the end of 2015, Congresswoman Stefanik helped pass a series of tax provisions including a permanent tax rule on business expensing and a provision making the R&D tax credit permanent.
