Press Release, Congresswoman Claudia Tenney

Congresswoman Claudia Tenney (NY-24) today unveiled her Veterans Plan and Broadband Access Plan to highlight her commitment to our communities’ veterans and to rural broadband access.

To address New York’s lack of adequate broadband competition, earlier this year, Tenney co-sponsored the American Broadband Deployment Act which works to streamline the federal, state, and local permitting and approval of broadband and wireless communication facilities. Tenney’s plan details her commitment and efforts to bring fast, reliable and affordable broadband to all corners of NY-24.

In addition, this week, Tenney reintroduced her bipartisan Remembering Our Local Heroes Act, to secure funding to preserve the legacies of veterans, firefighters, and law enforcement officers in our communities. This bill reinforces the four core pillars of her Veterans plans, which includes ensuring transparency and accountability within the VA, expanding access to quality healthcare, supporting the transition to civilian life, and honoring the sacrifice of those who served.

Today, I unveiled my Broadband Access Plan and Veterans Plan, which underscore my unwavering dedication to bridging the digital divide in our rural communities and honoring the service of our nation’s brave veterans,” said Congresswoman Tenney. “As a Marine Mom, I am committed to ensuring our veterans have the resources and federal support they need to reintegrate into society and access their hard-earned benefits. In addition, I am working to cut through bureaucratic red tape preventing the expansion of affordable rural broadband and supporting legislation to give NY-24 access to fast, dependable, and affordable broadband options.”
