From Albany to Buffalo and many points in between, the Erie Canal was a driving force behind our region’s economic prosperity, and it all started in #NY22. I’m honored to introduce a commemorative coin bill with Rep. Paul Tonko (D-NY-20) to celebrate the canal’s bicentennial.


I also want to thank Rep. Chris Jacobs (R-NY) Rep. Brian Higgins (D-NY-26) Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY-21) & Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY-1) for joining this initiative. We need to restore the spirit of dynamism that led to the canal's creation back to our region! Learn more about the bill below. → New York Lawmakers Introduce Bipartisan Bill Commemorating Erie Canal’s Bicentennial


Nearly 200 years ago, construction of the Erie Canal put New York on the map, opened our nation to westward expansion, and helped form America.

I am proud to join Rep. Claudia Tenney (R-NY-22) and my colleagues in honoring our state’s history and support the preservation of the Canal.
