SUBJECT:

Plastic Pipe Restrictions

 

DATE:

June 21, 2004

 

The Business Council strongly opposes this legislation which would extend and make permanent a state prohibition on the use of plastic pipe and conduit in many construction applications.

We urge you to oppose this legislation for a number of reasons:

New York is still recovering from the recent economic recession. The last thing we need is another anti-competitive cost measure imposed on development efforts. For these reasons, we urge you to reject this legislation, and allow the plastic pipe restrictions to sunset this year.
