Statement from Kathryn Wylde, President & CEO of the Partnership for New York City, on the Business Regulation Council

“The Business Regulation Council has demonstrated that business and labor interests representing all parts of our state can work together to come up with policy and regulatory actions that enhance the economic interests of all New Yorkers. Within six weeks, members of the Council, with input from the public, were able to identify dozens of opportunities to improve the state’s business climate. We hope the recommendations of the Council to the Governor, Senate and Assembly can result in some quick wins that will benefit employers and workers alike. We will continue to work on some of the thornier issues – such as worker’s compensation, insurance, tax, and procurement – in order to carry out the full mission with which the Council was charged.”
