I proudly supported the USMCA trade agreement, which has helped expand our markets for American-made goods and bolster NY-21’s economy. This agreement was a significant win for farmers, small businesses, manufacturers, and families.
As a member of the Armed Services & Intelligence Committees, I’ve fought to combat threats from foreign adversaries. In the national defense bill, I helped secure a provision prohibiting DoD funding to entities with contracts with China and Russia.
I sounded the alarm on Biden’s baby formula shortage back in Feb, & I’ve fought to expose & end this crisis, including introducing legislation to help get formula back on shelves. As a new Mom, I’ll continue this advocacy until shelves are full.
I helped pass legislation that will put tougher penalties on scam robocalls, including a penalty of up to $10,000 per violation. It is important that we fight scammers that seek to take advantage of the vulnerable in our community.
