Washington, D.C. – Following Fort Drum’s release of its 2021 economic impact statement, Stefanik issued the following statement:
“The economic impact of Fort Drum shows the critical role it plays for the North Country, which is why, as the chief advocate for Fort Drum in Congress, I fight to deliver millions of dollars each year to support its important work,” Stefanik said. “I look forward to continuing to deliver results for Fort Drum, our military families, and New York’s 21st District that create this kind of lasting impact.”
In 2021, Fort Drum had a nearly $2 billion economic impact on the area and was responsible for, or supported, nearly one-fourth of all jobs in Jefferson, Lewis, and St. Lawrence Counties.
