NFIB/NY Applauds Positive Steps Towards Reducing Red Tape

Date: January 05, 2015

Last
week, Governor Cuomo announced that since 2011 more than two hundred pro-business administrative
and regulatory reforms have been implemented to improve the business
climate in New York State. In a report released on December 30, 2014, the Cuomo
Administration and state agencies detailed the reforms aimed at helping
businesses increase revenue, lower costs of doing business and expand
operations. At the urging of business organizations, including NFIB/NY, business owners, local municipalities and other stakeholders, state
agencies identified areas needing reform, developed plans for reform and made
necessary changes to ease the burdens of doing business in the state. 

Mike
Durant, State Director of NFIB/NY, said, “Senseless and redundant
regulations have been driving up the cost of doing business, particularly small
businesses, in New York State for decades. Governor Cuomo has rightfully
shown leadership in cutting unnecessary red tape, and we applaud his
administration in this necessary and comprehensive first step toward
dramatic regulatory reform.” 

NFIB/NY
strongly supported many of the regulatory reform proposals, and small
businesses in New York will especially benefit from broad reforms to the
Unemployment Insurance and Workers’ Compensation programs; streamlined
processes through one-stop shops that coordinate various agency activities; and bulletins
focusing on clear language explanations of Tax and Finance laws and
regulations.

comprehensive report entitled, Administrative and Regulatory Reform For
Businesses in New York, 2011-2014,” is available here
