Plastic Pipe Restrictions



May 16, 2005


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.
