Tonko asking for pork for Coeymans and Ravena

Apr 18, 2023 12:23 am

The Troy Record reports that Rep. Paul Tonko announced 15 community development and improvement projects in his 20th Congressional District that he submitted to the House Committee on Appropriations. This is what is sometimes called pork in Washington D.C. Each Congressional representative may request funding for up to 15 projects each Fiscal Year. Not all projects are guaranteed funding, but most get their dollars, under the guidelines issued by the Appropriations Committee. Tonko asked for two of his 15 projects for the southern Albany County town of Coeymans and the village of Ravena. Coeymans, if successful, would get $1,882,500 for their sewer system, while Ravena is asking for $3,000,000 to improve their drinking water systems. Read the full story in the Troy Record.
