Update on Council's 'E-advocacy'

Supporters of further business tax reduction and reform in New York State have used The Business Council's "electronic advocacy" website to generate more than 8,000 faxes to key lawmakers and staff in Albany since the site was unveiled about six weeks ago.

The Council created the site after months of research by Business Council staff and members on new tax cuts and reforms that should be advocated. The site is accessible from The Council's home page, www.bcnys.org.

Visitors to this site can choose from 15 different tax cuts and reforms and then automatically generate letters specific to the proposed cut or reform selected. Letters are automatically faxed to the appropriate elected officials and staff members.
