Last week, the Business Council of New York State released a ‘Top Ten List’ of policy initiatives to improve the state’s business climate.

Some of our favorites are:

  • Keeping state budget growth under 2-percent;
  • Passing an on-time budget;
  • Reducing energy costs by repealing the 18-A energy assessment;
  • Scaffold Law reform; and
  • Extending and reforming the Brownfield Cleanup Program.

These are all good ideas, and we look forward to working with the Business Council to make them a reality in 2015.
