State Department Officials Listen to Passport Proposal Concerns at Plattsburgh Forum

Plattsburgh, NY – Business and tourism officials from across New York's North Country and southern Quebec met in Plattsburgh Wednesday for a forum on new border identification rules proposed by the US Department of Homeland Security. The vast majority of those attending told the State Department representative who traveled to Plattsburgh that the current system isn't broken, and what they're planning could jeopardize the economy and culture of border communities. WAMC's North Country Bureau Chief Pat Bradley was at the forum.
