This Week in Washington
As the Chief Advocate for Fort Drum and the 10th Mountain Division, I have been blessed to meet so many wonderful military children in my district. Every single day, I am honored to represent them and fight for their families in Congress. Please join me this month in thanking the military families and children in our communities!

Announced $765K for Plattsburgh International Airport
On Tuesday, I announced the Department of Transportation will award Plattsburgh International Airport $765,000 in federal grants for rehabilitation and construction:
  • $135,000 to rehabilitate the apron
  • $315,000 to rehabilitate a taxiway
  • $315,000 to construct a deicing pad with associated facilities for a runway and terminal
Plattsburgh International Airport allows North Country residents the ability to conveniently travel, and I have long advocated for additional funding and resources to continue its essential flight services. I am proud that nearly $1 million in taxpayer dollars will return to the airport for important construction projects and maintenance.
The Department of Housing and Urban Development will grant the Plattsburgh Housing Authority $250,000 to purchase surveillance cameras for their properties. The Plattsburgh Housing Authority provides affordable housing for many North Country residents, and this funding will be directly put towards measures to improve their safety and security.
