Higgins Calls for Clean Payroll Tax Cut Bill


Frustrated with unrelated add-ons and wasted time on one-house legislation, Congressman Brian Higgins (NY-27) took to the Floor of the House of Representatives to encourage his colleagues to abandon today’s consideration of H.R. 3630 and instead begin serious debate on clean legislation to cut the payroll tax for middle class families in Western New York and across the nation. If Congress doesn’t act the payroll tax will go up to 6.2% on Jan. 1 from its current reduced rate of 4.2%.

Higgins Slams American Health Care Act Provision On Insurance Executive Compensation
Congressman Brian Higgins (NY-26), the Vice Ranking Member on the House Committee on Ways and Means, spoke before the committee during the legislative mark-up of the American Health Care Act (AHCA), the bill intended to replace the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

Under this bill, hard-working Americans and seniors are forced to pay, while private health insurance companies are allowed to claim exorbitant executive compensation as a business expense for federal tax deductions. There is only one ‘repeal and replace’ strategy that Congress should entertain. Repeal this morally reprehensible provision that allows insuranc
Higgins Calls on Amtrak to Advocate for Central Terminal as Preferred Train Station Site
In a letter to the President and CEO of the National Passenger Rail Corporation (doing business as Amtrak) Congressman Brian Higgins (NY-26) is asking for clarity on Amtrak’s long-term plans for service in the Buffalo region and advocating for reactivation of the Central Terminal.  Higgins says “the Corporation should more forcefully and specifically advocate for the return of service to the Central Terminal, as such return is in the interest of the Corporation and its ridership.” In written testimony provided by Amtrak to the Buffalo Train Station Site Selection Task Force, the Corporation writes: “Amtrak currently serves the Buffalo area with two stations – Buffalo Exchange and Buffalo Depew.  The first thing the Task Force needs to address is whether or not there should be one or two stations.  This decision will help frame the decision for the new station site.”  Higgins, a member of the site selection committee and strong supporter of the Central Terminal, agree
Statement by Congressman Brian Higgins
Congressman Brian Higgins (NY-26) released the following statement in response to President Trump’s Executive Order banning foreign nationals from Sudan, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia and Yemen from entering the United States: “Every person living in this country desires a sense of security and a promise that horrific acts of terrorism, like that exacted on fellow New Yorkers on 9/11, will never take place again. This ban does nothing to bring us closer to that objective.  “Instead, this far-reaching and arbitrary ban that implements a blanket restriction on all residents from six nations merely provides a false sense of security manufactured by the Administration; one that would not have prevented 9/11 and does nothing to protect people today based on genuine intelligence and risk. “To make matters worse for Western New York, this Travel Ban calls for expedited completion of a biometric entry-exit tracking system, a process that would add an additional layer of screening at
