New York U.S. Senator Charles Schumer will be making stops in the region Friday.

Senate Minority Leader Schumer is scheduled to visit Gloversville in Fulton County at 1 p.m. The Democrat is expected to address cuts to federal programs that benefit rural hospitals. Schumer says if Congress does not renew payments through the Low-Volume Hospital and Medicare-Dependent Hospital programs, Nathan Littauer Hospital will lose more than $1 million in federal aid.

Afterward, Schumer is scheduled to visit Niagara Engine Co. 6 in Schoharie County to present a flag flown over the U.S. Capitol. The fire company is preparing to open a new firehouse on Saturday.
