Statement

"The economic future of Western New York is increasingly tied to the free flow of people and trade across our border with Canada. From our auto manufacturing plants to our professional sports teams and our retail businesses to our airport; all benefit from our close proximity to Southern Ontario which has an estimated population of 13.4 million and is expected to grow to 17.7 over the next 24 years.

"With plans for a U.S. Department of Homeland Security pre-inspection pilot at the Peace Bridge and progress, under the leadership of Governor Cuomo, to construct a new plaza we now have the federal and state governments working in unison to increase capacity and predictability at our border. Finally we have freed the Peace Bridge project from a long bureaucratic holding pattern and we are opening up the bottleneck at this binational transportation corridor that crucial to our interconnected economies."
