Slaughter Organizes Upstate Congressional Caucus

By Mark Scott

Buffalo, NY – Congresswoman Louise Slaughter has organized an Upstate New York Congressional Caucus.

Slaughter said some of the money from a proposed economic recovery plan should be earmarked for projects upstate -- projects that she said would create jobs for out-of-work New Yorkers.
