Tomorrow, Congresswoman Kathy Hochul, representative from New York's 26th Congressional District, will meet with Colonel Allan L. Swartzmiller and Colonel Jim S. McCready, Jr. at the Niagara Falls Air Reserve Station to discuss the recent announcement by Defense Secretary Leon Panetta to make cuts to the defense budget.

Hochul is working hard to ensure cuts are not made at the Niagara Falls Air Reserve Station, the only military installation in Western New York, which employs more than 3,500 workers and contributes $168 million to the local economy.
