Act Now: NY Small Business Advocacy Day Online

Date: March 10, 2017

Tell Lawmakers to Support Workers' Comp Reform

ACT NOW: Send a pre-written email telling lawmakers to SUPPORT workers’ comp reforms. 

The survival of small business depends on YOU!

NFIB/NY and a coalition of over 20 pro-business organizations and associations are working together to make sure that Governor Cuomo and the New York State Legislature know small business is the backbone of the state’s economy.

On March 14, NFIB/NY and its partners will be at the New York State Capitol and Legislative Office Building advocating for policies that protect and promote small business. But it’s critical that lawmakers hear from their constituents– You!
