Letters to the editor

To the editor: In a recent e-newsletter, Congresswoman Stefanik featured her co-sponsorship of a bill called the “U.S.-Israel Directed Energy Cooperation Act.” It seemed odd, so I checked her official website for details but found none. Why is this bill needed? Is there any cost to ...
