Saratoga, NY – Congresswoman Elise Stefanik has been a consistent advocate for a regional-based approach to reopening the economy in New York State. 

April 18: Adirondack Daily Enterprise/Press Republican: Stefanik: North Country can reopen sooner than downstate

“I have consistently advocated for a regional-based approach when it comes to reopening New York's economy,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “I am pleased that New York State has recognized that the challenges and circumstances of the North Country are different than New York City when it comes to reopening our economy and getting people back to work. I believe our local county public health officials and hospitals will help guide these decisions. Additionally, in my role on President Trump’s Task Force to Reopen the Economy, I will be working with my bipartisan colleagues on this regional approach to ensure we balance both public health and the need to get people back to work safely."
