The House Armed Services Committee now has a Democratic Congress member representing New York and the Mohawk Valley.

Congressman Anthony Brindisi joins this committee as an advocate for strong national defense.

“This is an honor and a big deal for Upstate New York,” Brindisi said. “Our district has a rich history of being at the forefront of our national defense and now we will have a bigger seat at the table. From the critical mission in Rome, to the groundbreaking research and manufacturing in the Southern Tier, and the defense jobs across our communities, I cannot wait to use Upstate innovation to continue to keep our country safe.”

Brindisi says this is a “big win” for Rome Lab, the Defense Finance & Accounting Services, and the Eastern Air Defense Sector.

“The work conducted at our defense installations in Rome and across our state is critical for our national security,” Brindisi added. “Protecting these installations is important for our regional economy. I look forward to working with stakeholders across upstate New York to find ways to grow the missions of our state’s defense installations.”

In April, Brindisi testified about the importance of Rome Lab’s perimeter security project, securing $10 million for Rome Lab in June.
