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.

to:

Stand
