CHAMPLAIN, N.Y. - U.S. Rep. Bill Owens (NY-21) is visiting the Champlain Port of Entry on Friday for a tour and presentation of the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) system.

A press release says the system conducts legitimate trade while enhancing border security, improving information collection, sharing and processing by U.S. Customs and Border Patrol officers.

Officials expect the system to streamline trade and grow the community's economy.
