WASHINGTON, D.C. — Rep. Claudia Tenney, R-22, New Hartford, has been named by the House Republican Conference to the House of Representatives Small Business Committee and the Foreign Affairs Committee, according to a release.

“I am honored to have been named to the House Small Business Committee as well as the House Foreign Affairs Committee,” Tenney said in a statement.

“Small businesses are the bedrock of our economy in the 22nd District. Local employers have been hit especially hard by the COVID-19 pandemic, and I’m laser focused on making sure they get the relief they need to recover and come back stronger than ever,” she added. “Congress needs to cut through the red tape and make sure programs to help business owners are easily accessible and administered with integrity,” the statement said, adding that Tenney is a longtime small business owner. “New York’s 22nd Congressional District is also home to a large and diverse refugee population, including individuals from Vietnam, Myanmar, and Bosnia, which was part of the former Yugoslavia ... Many of the refugees in my district fled violence or persecution. I am proud to represent these communities and will stand with them on the committee to advocate for democracy and respect for human rights around the world,” she added.
