2017 Federal Priorities2017 Federal Priorities

After the Presidential election, the Partnership surveyed CEOs to solicit their views on the top federal priorities for 2017. There was broad consensus that the most important issues for New York and its business community are:

  1. Infrastructure
    Put Americans to work building modern, resilient infrastructure
  2. Tax and regulatory relief
    Accelerate economic growth and balance the federal budget without slashing essential services
  3. Cyber and homeland security
    Increase business-government collaboration to protect the nation
  4. Education and workforce development
    Ensure all Americans have the opportunity to succeed at work
  5. Immigration 
    Attract global talent to meet labor market needs

The federal priorities document, produced with the help of Oliver Wyman, elaborates on these issues. It is intended to provide Partnership members with a consistent framework for discussions with the incoming Trump administration and leaders of Congress.
