Higgins: GOP Tax Bill is a Massive Giveaway to Corporate America
As GOP leaders speed closer to passing tax legislation, Congressman Brian Higgins (NY-26) warned of the impact the bill will have on higher education and healthcare in America: Video of Congressman Higgins Explains How GOP Tax Plan Hits Students, Explodes Deficit “Mr. Speaker: The President said yesterday that these massive tax cuts for corporate America will be rocket fuel for the economy. Rocket fuel for Corporate America and the Trump Empire certainly, and a rocket-fueled hit through the heart of middle America for sure. “If you are in college and you are trying to become better and self-sufficient, to thrive in the global economy, you’re getting a big tax hike. “If you have a medical illness you were born into, and your costs exceed your insurance coverage, you’ll be getting a big tax hike. “If you’re one of 13 million Americans to lose your healthcare coverage, and the millions more who will see their premiums explode because Congressional Republicans neede
Higgins Votes No on Tax Bill
Congressman Brian Higgins, Vice Ranking Member of the House Ways and Means Committee, called the GOP tax bill a “hit on fundamental fairness” before casting vote against the tax package.  Higgins repeatedly expressed concern that the legislation pays for tax benefits for wealthy corporations at the expense of hardworking Americans and communities like Western New York.  Video of Congressman Higgins Exposes GOP Tax Bill's Hit on Western New York Higgins spoke in opposition to the bill on the House Floor: “Mr. Speaker, This is nothing more than a hit job on Middle America to pay for a massive tax cut for Corporate America. “The only certainty from this charade is slower economic growth, more income inequality, and exploding deficits. “When you take away tax relief from sick people who were born into illness, for whom insurance does not provide enough coverage, that is a hit on Middle America. “When you remove help for people who are just trying to make
Higgins Outlines Next Step in Niagara Falls Waterfront Development
Congressman Brian Higgins (NY-26) stood along the edge of the Niagara River to lay out a vision to sustain momentum along the City of Niagara Falls waterfront.   In a letter to the New York Power Authority (NYPA) President, Higgins commended NYPA for taking responsibility for removal of the Robert Moses Parkway north section but pressed for the Power Authority to also fulfill its obligation along the south section, “…under Robert Moses’ leadership, NYPA acquired the entire southern waterfront of the city of Niagara Falls from the I-190 to the State Park.  Now that the northern section from the falls to Findlay Drive is almost ready for construction, I write today to advocate that the Authority finance the advancement of the proposed redevelopment of the Southern section of the Parkway along the same lines.” The Niagara Falls Opportunity Area study began in 2007 and a draft plan was released in 2017.  The plan encompasses over 1,800 acres, with its southern border being th
ERIE COUNTY, NY— The Erie County Department of Health (“ECDOH”), in partnership with Neighborhood Health Centers and the Seneca Nation Health System, has received a 3-year, $300,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office on Women’s Health to address the prevention of prescription and non-prescription opioid misuse by women. One of twenty communities nationwide to receive funding, Erie County’s grant project will focus on opioid misuse among women of childbearing age, who have been identified as a population with an unmet need for increased opioid misuse screening and linkage to treatment. Erie County, similar to many U.S. communities, is experiencing a rapid rise in neonatal abstinence syndrome (“NAS”) incidence among infants born at local hospitals, a result of repeated fetal exposure to opioids. The Catholic Health System including Mercy Hospital, Mount St. Mary's and Sisters of Charity Hospital is also partnering in the effort. At a press
