ALBANY (MARCH 25, 2015) – All of the following may be attributed to Mike Durant,
State Director of NFIB.

“As the Governor and Legislature enter the final stages of
complex negotiations surrounding the state fiscal plan, we strongly advocate
for a meaningful, broad tax cut for small business to be incorporated within
any final budget deal.  Additionally, any negotiated agreement which
includes increasing the minimum wage or imposing a new paid leave mandate on
small employers will be considered core votes against small business. 
Further, the proposed new tax on health insurance plans will continue the escalation
of health insurance costs on small employers and should be rejected.

We remind both the Governor and lawmakers that small
business is integral to the economic health of our state and the decisions made
over the next few days will either threaten their viability or bolster their
confidence in Albany.”
