WASHINGTON, D.C. — On Friday, June 23, Congresswoman Claudia Tenney (NY-22) denounced Governor Andrew Cuomo’s expected veto of a bipartisan measure to provide $90 million in relief funding for Lake Ontario flood victims and municipalities.
“Families and small business owners in Oswego County and the Lake Ontario region have had their properties devastated by recent flooding. During a recent tour of the area, I had the chance to see the severity of the damage first hand. It is unthinkable that Governor Cuomo would deprive these property owners of the relief they desperately need," said Tenney.
She continued, "Both the State Senate and Assembly unanimously passed this bill, if the Governor refuses to sign it into law then that is a failure of leadership on his part. Upstate New Yorkers have been burdened long enough under Cuomo’s watch, it’s time that the families in the Lake Ontario region receive the relief they need."
