Washington, D.C. – Today, during National Invasive Species Awareness Week, Congresswoman Elise Stefanik (R-NY-21) announced that she will serve as Co-Chair of the bipartisan Congressional Invasive Species Caucus with Congressman Mike Thompson (D-CA-05) in the 115th Congress.

“I thank Co-Chairman Thompson and my colleagues on the caucus for this opportunity,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “New York is sadly the epicenter of invasive species, and we must work together at the federal, state and local levels to combat these ecological predators. In Congress, I look forward to reintroducing my legislation aimed at creating awareness and combating invasive species, and look forward to working with my colleagues in this caucus on solutions to protect our ecological treasures.”
