Business Council Statement on Senate Majority Coalition Regulatory Reform Report

Heather C. Briccetti, Esq., President and CEO of The Business Council of New York State

ALBANY, N.Y.—“This report returns the spotlight to the state's vast body of regulations, and highlights ways in which the state imposes excess or unnecessary compliance costs on business and other regulated entities. The Business Council appreciates the Senate Majority Coalition's long-standing leadership in seeking to reduce regulatory barriers and make New York a better place for business.

“It sets forth a broad agenda for regulatory and procedural reforms, and illustrates the need for reducing mandates and for providing compliance flexibility and technical assistance.

“Regulatory burdens impact each of the wide range of companies who are members of The Business Council. We look forward to working with the Senate Majority Coalition, Legislature and Governor in implementing meaningful regulatory reform in New York.”
