Engaging Senator Schumer with my TickBITE Act

I applaud Senator Schumer for coming to Dutchess County to bring awareness and taking action on this important issue on the federal level. I have introduced the TickBITE Act and other legislation on the state level to address the seriousness of Lyme disease and tick-borne illness. It is crucial that those affected by this disease are cared for while we expand our efforts for research and education. I look forward to working with Senator Schumer to better protect the health of all New Yorkers.
