Business Council statement praising UI cost savings

ALBANY, N.Y.—“We congratulate the Governor and the Legislature on achieving substantive savings in Unemployment Insurance costs that will reduce the average employer’s UI tax by $1200 this year,” said Heather C. Briccetti, Esq., president and CEO of The Business Council of New York State, Inc. “The Business Council supported the 2013 reforms that led to these savings, and today’s announcement is a great example of how government and business can work together to improve New York State’s economic climate. We hope the administration and the Legislature keep that spirit of cooperation in mind as we move into next year’s session and address issues that could severely hinder economic growth.”
