2018 Result: The Northern Border Regional Commission (NBRC) is a Federal-State partnership that allocates federal funding in rural communities along the Northern Border. In Congress, I am a leading voice to ensure that this federal program is funded and wrote bipartisan legislation to extend its authorization for five years. With my support, the NBRC has provided critical grants across our district to support: water infrastructure projects in Watertown, Plattsburgh, Fulton, Nelson, Tupper Lake, Canton, and Elizabethtown; telecommunications infrastructure projects in Massena; the County Fish Hatchery in Essex County; and a business incubator in Johnstown, among other projects.
