The Senate Majority Coalition has released a report that “identifies 2,219 specific rules, regulations and practices that put New York’s businesses at a competitive disadvantage.”

 

The effort was undertaken by Senators Gallivan (R), Valesky (IDC), Marchione (R) and Carlucci (IDC).  Last fall, the senators held 9 industry-specific forums throughout the state, in an effort to identify “burdensome and duplicitous state regulations that impede job creation and economic growth” so that they can be eliminated.

 

The Senators pointed out that New York was ranked 35th last year by CNBC as a place to do business — one place worse than in 2012. They said New York ranked 49th in cost of doing business – which they attribute in large part to a burdensome regulatory system.
