Once again, The Business Council's President & CEO, Heather Briccetti, has been named to the City & State Albany Power 100 list. Coming in at #50 the ranking states:
"Heather Briccetti opposed new taxes on corporations and top earners included in the state budget, which she said could hurt businesses and encourage New Yorkers to leave. She pointed to a survey sponsored by the Business Council of New York State that found 80% of upstate CEOs agree that economic conditions have worsened since the pandemic, and only 40% expressed hope for a recovery. Briccetti is also worried about unemployment insurance rates that escalated by $200 per employee in some cases."
