Senator Schumer is calling on federal lawmakers to approve local applications that he says will bring jobs from Asia into the U.S.

Schumer is pushing for the creation of two foreign trade zones, including one in Ontario County. Those trade zones keep customs duties low to level the playing field with foreign businesses.

One of those zones would allow a local company, Crosman Corporation, to create up to 25 new manufacturing openings over the next three years and increase trade with China.

The senator will speak at 2:15 p.m. at Crosman Corporation on Routes 5 and 20 in Bloomfield.
