Slaughter Secures $16.25 Million for New York's 28th District

Rep. Louise M. Slaughter (D-NY-28), Ranking Member of the House Rules Committee, announced last week that she had secured $16.25 million in federal funds for the 28th district. The funding will support initiatives in Rochester, Buffalo, Niagara, Penfield, and Lewiston.

“I am pleased to announce that we have just secured over 16 million dollars in federal funding for Western New York,” Rep. Slaughter said. “This funding will create jobs, improve our transportation infrastructure, enable community revitalization, and further medical research across the 28th district – and there’s more to come.”

“It is important to remember that each dollar we bring home has a multiplier effect on our community,” Rep. Slaughter continued. “Each project that is funded, whether it is for research, transportation, aviation, medicine, or community revitalization is money getting pumped into the regional economy and helping Western New York create jobs and remain competitive.”

“That’s why these projects and this money are so important for all Western New Yorkers.”

The funding was included as part of the FY07 Department of Defense appropriations bill, the FY07 Transportation-Treasury-HUD appropriations bill (both approved by the House, and pending Senate approval), and FY07 Labor-HHS Appropriations, which has been approved by House Committee.
