On the same day that he met with the Niagara Military Affairs Council in his Washington, D.C. office, Congressman Brian Higgins spoke from the House Floor to issue his continued support for preserving the Niagara Falls Air Reserve Station’s place in Western New York.

Higgins cited the upcoming construction of a new C-130 flight simulator and the proposed construction of a new Customs & Border Protection border patrol station among innovative strategies to invest in the base and expand its mission for long-term sustainability.
