WASHINGTON (WCAX) - Congresswoman Elise Stefanik is still trying to get New York’s North Country more money post-flooding.

The Republican sent a letter to Governor Kathy Hochul requesting all North Country and upstate New York counties affected by flooding be included in the state’s disaster declaration and that the current declaration does not include the full extent of the flooding.

“I believe it is critical for the state of New York to work to ensure full restoration for all families, businesses, and neighborhoods affected by these disasters,” Stefanik said.

She says residents in Clinton County have reported hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of damage to roads and property.
