Congressman Chris Collins and County Legislators Meet with State Department Officials On Lake Ontario Water Regulations
Congressman Chris Collins (NY-27) today released the following statement after Niagara County Legislator David Godfrey, Orleans County Legislator Lynne Johnson, and he met with State Department officials regarding the International Joint Commission’s (IJC) Plan 2014 to govern Lake Ontario water levels.
“Once again, I voiced my concern and opposition to the plan announced by the IJC, which would devastate residents along the Lake’s southern shore,” said Congressman Chris Collins. “On the heels of what I heard from local legislators and residents at last week’s press conference, it is clear this plan is not in the best interest of homeowners and other stakeholders along the Lake Ontario shoreline. I am glad we had the opportunity to voice our concerns to the State Department, which is currently undergoing an interagency review of the IJC’s proposal. I remain committed to working with my colleagues in state and local government against its implementation.”
