Jacobs Cosponsors Legislation to Protect Coverage for Pre-Existing Conditions


(Washington, D.C.) – Congressman Chris Jacobs (NY-27) has cosponsored the Pre-Existing Conditions Protection Act of 2019 (H.R. 692).

“Protecting coverage for individuals with pre-existing conditions is a bipartisan priority that is critical to the well-being of the most vulnerable in our community,” Jacobs said. “As the son of a physician, access to quality and affordable healthcare is something I care deeply about. I am proudly working with my colleagues to lower the cost of prescription drugs, increase transparency, and decrease the cost of healthcare in the United States.”

H.R. 692 – The Pre-Existing Conditions Protection Act of 2019 – would preserve access to health care for people with pre-existing conditions if the Affordable Care Act is significantly changed or repealed.

Once Again, You Were There When Needed Most …

On behalf of the Rotary Club of Akron Newstead we extend a huge THANK YOU to you, the Akron Newstead community for the terrific support of the recent Andrew Boncore Memorial Fund Raiser Raffle. The raffle took the place of our annual golf tournament that has traditionally been the club’s largest fundraiser; this was due to Covid-19. The success of the raffle, made possible through your spirit of generosity, will enable us to continue to help Akron Newstead citizens and organizations. The purchase of tickets as well as the support of our corporate raffle sponsors(Cold Spring Construction, Jan’s Smoke Shop & Gas Mart, Niagara Specialty Metals, Schrock Metal Products, The Rez Smoke Shop & Gas Mart whose assistance was in memory of Neville Spring, The Stamm Law Firm and Two Eagles Stogie Shack) will make a positive difference in the place we all call home.
Speaking of outstanding corporate citizens, we also salute our Annual Corporate Sponsors who support Rotary and Lions in Akron Newstead: Bank on Buffalo, Cold Spring Construction, County Line Stone, Doyle Security, Empire Building Diagnostics, MGA Research, Niagara Label, Niagara Specialty Metals, Perry’s Ice Cream and Whiting Door Manufacturing.
