Enactment of a Property Tax Cap

Stopped Devastating Farm Labor Bill
Stopped higher labor cost, which included overtime pay, workers compensation cost, and unionization of farm workers.

Relief for Taxpayers through Pension Reform
NFIB successfully fought this reform which will result in significant savings for taxpayers over time, and will decrease the burden on business owners.

Stopped an Increase to Thruway Tolls
NFIB helped lead an effort to stop a 45% hike in its tracks.

Independent Contractors/Owner-Operator Drivers
NFIB successfully fought legislation which would have put nearly all owner-operator small business owners out of business in NY by requiring them to be employees.
