More on Tax Reform
Congressman Chris Collins (NY-27) today hailed the inclusion of his amendment to the House passed American Health Care Act into the Senate version of the bill. The amendment, introduced with Congressman John Faso (NY-19), would require New York State to take over the county portion of Medicaid by 2020 and would provide the largest property tax reduction ever to Western New York.
“This was a long fought battle against the injustice in Albany and is a big victory for taxpayers,” said Congressman Collins.
Chris Collins (R-Clarence) and Congressmen John Faso (R-Kinderhook) today expressed satisfaction upon learning that the language based on Faso's Property Tax Reduction Act (PTRA), which was inserted by Collins as part of the House’s American Health Care Act (AHCA), was also included in the Senate’s draft healthcare legislation released on Thursday.
Getting Congress involved in the discussion – and potential decision – over whether to take military action in Syria is a good step, some members of Congress from Western New York said Saturday.
But grave concerns about the situation were expressed, with some elected officials cautioning about what could lie down the road.
Rep. Chris Collins, R-Clarence, called the Syria situation “extemely complex,” in a statement released Saturday, but said he was “pleased President Obama has made the decision to consult and receive authorization from Congress” on the matter.
Congressman Chris Collins (NY-27) spoke to senior citizens today about the House Republican Budget proposal which balances in ten years and protects Medicare. Released earlier this week, the proposal includes a specific protection for Medicare Advantage championed by Collins.
