Washington, DC – Today, Congresswoman Elise Stefanik (R-NY-21) issued the following statement supporting President Trump’s effort to expand choice in healthcare for families and businesses:

“Families and businesses in my district deserve more choice in healthcare, and I applaud these efforts to lower costs,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “Allowing employers to pool together and purchase insurance across state lines is commonsense and will allow more people to access affordable coverage. I will continue to work in Congress on bipartisan healthcare solutions to help lower costs, increase access and improve quality.”

Recently, Congresswoman Stefanik has been leading the charge in Congress to protect funding for Community Health Centers in NY-21 that provide services to over 95,000 people. Earlier this year, Congresswoman Stefanik cosponsored H.R. 1101 -- the Small Business Health Fairness Act. This legislation would empower small businesses to join together through association health plans (AHPs) to provide their employees greater access to affordable health care.
