Business Council Statement on Budget Agreement

ALBANY— “The Business Council is pleased that Governor Cuomo and legislative leaders are continuing on the path to bringing fiscal stability back to New York.

For the second year in a row, New Yorkers will be pleased that our state leaders have enacted an on-time budget with controlled spending and no new taxes. The budget also makes important investments in job creation and critical infrastructure.

This sends a strong message to the state's business community and the rest of the nation that New York has turned the corner and moved in a direction that will lead to a better economy and an improved employment outlook for millions of New Yorkers.”
