STATEMENT FROM U.S. REP. JOHN KATKO REGARDING DECISION ON PLAN 2014

December 8, 2016
Press Release

Washington, D.C. U.S. Rep. John Katko (NY-24) today released the below statement following today’s approval of Plan 2014:

“I am incredibly disappointed with today’s announcement that Plan 2014 will move forward.  This decision by the Administration, made on its way out the door, will have a devastating impact on the shoreline, homes, businesses, and vast agriculture economies of Wayne, Cayuga, and Oswego Counties.  While I certainly support preserving our region’s natural resources and maintaining the health of Lake Ontario,  I have long called for more thorough, objective research into the overwhelming consequences of Plan 2014 for our community and our local economy.  Despite the last-ditch actions taken by the Administration today, I will continue to work with all levels of government – including the incoming Administration – as well as stakeholders and community members to pursue every possible course to ensure that our shoreline is protected and to mitigate the impact of this decision.”

Congressman John Katko represents the 24th Congressional District, which includes all of Onondaga, Cayuga, and Wayne Counties and a portion of Oswego County.  For more information, please visit https://katko.house.gov or www.facebook.com/RepJohnKatko.
