Does Albany Have a Small Business Agenda?

Date: April 30, 2014

NFIB/NY partnered with business organizations across the state in a series of member meetings during April. The meetings included a brief recap of the recently enacted budget and a discussion about issues that lawmakers might consider during the remainder of the legislative session. 

NFIB/NY State Director Mike Durant stressed the importance of the business community coming together to demonstrate its strength. Durant warned that, without a clearly defined “To Do” list from the Governor, lawmakers might advance priorities that will negatively impact business. These last few weeks of session, however, also could be an opportunity for lawmakers to adopt legislation that will improve the business climate. 

This opportunity to change the trajectory is the reason that it is critical lawmakers hear from you -- small business owners-- during these last twenty days of session. The biggest threat to small business is that lawmakers actually believe the rhetoric in those TV commercials that paints a rosy picture of the “new” New York.

Take a moment to tell lawmakers about the issues that will truly make New York Open for Business.
