Congressman Brian Higgins (NY-26) joined local Vietnam War veteran Mykola “Nick” Shwec and the family of late Korean War veteran Michael “Mike” Licata at the Purple Heart Memorial, along the Walk of Heroes, at the Buffalo and Erie County Naval & Military Park, to honor the service and sacrifice of both Purple Heart recipients and all veterans on August 7, National Purple Heart Day.

Congressman Higgins said, “These brave men gave everything to our country during their time of service and continued to give to our community upon their return home.  It is with honor and extreme humility that we thank not just these, but all veterans and their families, for incredible sacrifices both on and off the battlefield this Purple Heart Day.” Congressman Brian Hig
Higgins Asks EPA to Investigate Niagara Falls Sewer Discharge
Congressman Brian Higgins (NY-26) is writing to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) calling for a full investigation into actions which led to a substantial sewer discharge into the Niagara River on July 29, 2017.  Higgins expressed support for the ongoing review by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) but questioned whether the incident may have violated national and international regulations, “While I have full confidence in the DEC, given the importance of this water body and its international nature, I write today to request that the EPA investigate this discharge as well to determine if there was any violation of the Clean Water Act of 1972 (as amended), its associated regulations, or the United States’ obligations under the Boundary Waters Treaty of 1909 or subsequent international agreements,” wrote Higgins. Higgins, a member of the Congressional Great Lakes Task Force added, “This discharge is disconcerting not only because of
Tonawanda Coke environmental impact study kicks off
BUFFALO, N.Y. — The investigation into how air pollution emissions from the Tonawanda Coke plant may have affected nearby soil kicked into gear Friday with a gathering of elected officials, community organizers and scientists from the University at Buffalo and SUNY Fredonia. The event — at the River Road Volunteer Fire Co. in Tonawanda — included students and citizen scientists taking the first of a planned 270 soil samples from sites in the town and city of Tonawanda, the village of Kenmore, Grand Island and the city of Buffalo that surround the plant. “The situation surrounding Tonawanda Coke speaks to the importance of the Environmental Protection Agency and the critical difference residents can make in fighting for their community,” said Rep. Brian Higgins. “The soil study, a collaboration between various levels of government, the community, local businesses and the University at Buffalo, will provide further clues about the lasting impact of the company’s negligent

Niagara Falls, N.Y. - Today, Mayor Paul A. Dyster joined Congressman Brian Higgins, members of the Niagara Falls City Council and local officials to cut the ribbon on the 70th Street Park Improvement Project. Part of the 2015 Niagara Falls Community Development Action Plan and funded through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Community Development Block Grant Program, the project marks the city’s 26th parks renovation project since 2011. Mayor Paul Dyster said, “Twenty-six neighborhood parks, six years and countless residents not only utilizing these state-of-the-art facilities, but publicly participating in their creation once again highlights the importance of community development block grants funds and the support of federal leaders like Congressman Higgins. The continuation of such funding is paramount to quality of life issues in our community and I look forward to standing with the Congressman and our federal leaders to advance these projects for years
