Schumer vows to protect Finch Paper, jobs

GLENS FALLS, N.Y. -- U.S. Senator Charles Schumer joined Finch Paper representatives and employees to announce that a federal plan which would stop the printing of critical prescription drug information for health care professionals is dead on arrival in the Senate.

The senator explained that Congress is considering a bill under which the federal government would remove the requirement for drug makers to provide information about their drugs on paper, instead only requiring the information to be available online.

Schumer said this provision is a job killer for companies like Finch Paper, which employs 650 people at its Glens Falls plant. He pointed out that Finch Paper is the largest taxpayer in Glens Falls and retaining jobs at their company is one of his top priorities to ensure economic stability in the area and to protect the valuable service they provide health care professionals and consumers.
