NFIB/NY Statement on 2018 Executive Budget Proposal

Date: January 16, 2018

CONTACT: Mike Durant (518) 434-1261

All of the following may be attributed to Mike Durant, State Director of NFIB in response to the 2018 Executive Budget Proposal

 “The executive budget proposed today by Governor Cuomo offers little to help New York’s struggling small businesses and looks to impose a complicated and potentially unworkable new payroll tax.  New York’s lack of economic competitiveness and high tax status is solely the result of Albany’s tax and spend culture, not the recently enacted federal tax reform.

Small business in New York continues to face increased costs across the board.  Finger pointing and denial is not going to solve the economic and financial problems our state faces.  Reining in state spending, sensible regulatory reform and further reducing costs in health care and workers’ compensation will bolster small employers.  This executive budget proposal, yet again, fails in this regard.

NFIB/NY will be reviewing the Governor’s budget proposal over the next few days and will weigh in accordingly.”
