2016 Legislative Session a Disaster for Small Business

ALBANY (June 17, 2016) – All of the following may be attributed to Mike Durant, State Director of NFIB in response to the completion of the Legislative Session.

“Simply, the 2016 legislative session will go down as the worst for small business in recent memory.  From a state budget that enacted what assuredly will become the highest minimum wage in the nation and the most expansive paid leave mandate, to the complete lack of pro-business initiatives acted upon post budget, there is absolutely nothing of substance to applaud.

The level of anger and resentment our members, and small business owners generally, across New York feel towards Albany coming off this session is unprecedented.  It is critical that those lawmakers who return to Albany understand that simply mitigating anti-business legislation isn’t good enough.  We need to see a pro-active and aggressive reform agenda that will promote, protect and bolster small business in New York, rather than erecting new barriers.”
