Business Council Statement on "Tax-Free NY" Proposal

ALBANY—“We appreciate this proposal designed to boost the upstate economy, and look forward to seeing the details. It would provide significant tax incentives for emerging tech companies' businesses, for new investments by existing New York companies, and for other businesses' collaborating with SUNY and our private universities. It is an innovative approach, and illustrates that we can and should do more to make the state's overall economy climate more competitive.”
