BINGHAMTON, N.Y. – Congresswoman Claudia Tenney held a grand opening for her Binghamton district office on Monday.

It’s located on the 2nd floor of the MetroCenter, just down the hall from where her predecessor, Richard Hanna, had his Binghamton office.

Tenney says she has concerns about the healthcare plan put forward by fellow Republicans.

She’s worried that proposed limits on Medicaid funding will especially hurt New York which opted to expand Medicaid coverage under Obamacare.

Tenney was also asked about plans for a town hall meeting.

“I haven’t been cleared by the Capitol Police yet. Because you know that I have had some threats. Once that is available, we’d certainly like to hold some town halls. I hope that they’re productive and I hope that people come to them when we have some issues that we can talk about that we can advocate for for the region,” said Tenney.

Tenney says she no longer expects town halls to take place this month, and she thinks they’ll likely occur after a vote has already taken place on the GOP American Health Care Act.
