“It’s been a long road, but a school holiday for Lunar New Year will finally be a reality in New York City. I’m proud to have led the charge."
“I am proud to reintroduce, with Rep. Barton and Rep. Lance, legislation that would help protect millions of Americans from fraudulent, widespread telephone scams. The bill would prohibit spoofing by foreigners, and expand the law to include Voice over Internet Protocol and text messaging.”
I've announced, with Rep. Joe Crowley, that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will perform maintenance dredging of critical sandbanks in the Flushing Bay Federal Channel beginning this fall. Flushing Bay is an important local channel for ships and boats, and ensuring that these vessels are able to freely navigate through this body of water helps promote and improve everything from trade and commerce to recreation and public safety.
I am proud to have received a grade of 97 from the League of Conservation Voters, one of the nation’s leading environmental advocacy organizations, on their National Environmental Scorecard.
