Town of Lansing

Despite seven years of open meetings to craft a comprehensive plan revision, many Lansing residents complained last month that the public was not adequately invited to weigh in on the plan.  Controversy over a public hearing scheduled only a few days before Christmas led to the Town Board agreeing not to vote on final acceptance of the plan until there has been time to hold several more meetings at times and places accessible to residents.  Responding to that concern, Town Supervisor Ed LaVigne says he will ask the Town Board to add regular meetings and to agree to other measures that will help keep the public in the know.

"I will propose a series of two meetings a month," he says.  "The first one will be the first Wednesday of the month at 6:30.  We'll discuss this at our organizational meeting on January 17th."

Geneva - Senator Pam Helming today announced that she has been named to the Circle of Friends by the New York State Farm Bureau. This distinguished honor is a reflection of Helming's unwavering support of local farmers and New York State agriculture during the 2017 legislative session.

"Agriculture is the No. 1 industry in the Wayne-Finger Lakes region and is a top driver of job creation in our local communities and state. With that in mind, it just makes perfect sense for me to support legislation and budget measures that help our farmers grow and thrive. I am honored and humbled to receive this honor from New York Farm Bureau and look forward to a continued and successful partnership during this year's legislative session. It has been a pleasure to work with New York Farm Bureau President David Fisher and the Presidents of the County Farm Bureaus throughout the Wayne-Finger Lakes region," Helming said.

Washington, DC – The Problem Solvers Caucus released a new report Wednesday with bipartisan policy recommendations to build a 21st century infrastructure network for America. The forty-eight member bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus, led by Co-Chairs Tom Reed (NY-23) and Josh Gottheimer (NJ-05), launched an Infrastructure Working Group to find consensus on a bipartisan set of policies to serve as the bedrock for a plan that addresses the dire need to rebuild and responsibly invest in infrastructure across the United States.

"It's always better for the country when we act together. The bipartisan policy solutions we've delivered provide Congress the building blocks necessary to craft a comprehensive infrastructure plan that both parties can agree to," said Problem Solvers Caucus Co-Chair Tom Reed. "We've paved a bipartisan path to get to 'yes' and look forward to working with key leaders in Congress to find the right mix of policies to create legislation that can, and should, be enacted into law as soon as possible."
