ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Congressman Paul Tonko joined local elected officials on Monday to promote the benefits of Pres. Joe Biden’s Build Back Better agenda, including the potential positive impact it could have on children.

The Biden Administration’s investment in human infrastructure began with the American Rescue Plan, which established a child tax credit for certain American families that delivered a monthly stipend to those who qualify.
