Gov. Cuomo recently issued a 2014 year-end report titled Building on Success, which highlights some of his administration’s 2014 accomplishments.  The report touts the state’s continued fiscal responsibility, including controlling state spending to enable tax reductions, economic development initiatives, and progress on transportation infrastructure projects, among others.

The Governor also released a report on the 200+ administrative and regulatory reforms that his administration has put in place to improve the state’s business climate since he took office in 2011.

Gov. Cuomo said:

“When our administration took office, New York had a hostile business climate that made it hard to grow a business and create jobs. We made it our top priority to change that reality, and today it is cheaper and easier to do business in New York State than ever before.  I am proud of the progress that has been made over the past four years, because the Empire State is once again open for business.”

While much, much work remains to be done, we are pleased that Gov. Cuomo continues to emphasize the need to stress economic development and job growth, and to ease the burdens the state has placed on businesses so that the state’s private sector can succeed and create good jobs.
