Rep. Dan Maffei (D-NY) made the following statement today regarding the passage of the Continuing Resolution, H.R. 933, in the House of Representatives which appropriates $380 million of funding for the Medium Extended Air Defense System (MEADS) to help save hundreds of Central New York jobs:
"After spending the last few weeks urging leaders in Washington from both parties to continue the MEADS program, I am pleased that funding to save hundreds of Central New York jobs was included in the Continuing Resolution that was passed by the House of Representatives today. Creating more jobs and protecting hard working Central New York families are my top priorities. I will continue to do everything I can to advocate for MEADS and other programs that are critical to defending our nation and support good paying jobs in Central New York."
