Business Tax/Mandates

According to the Tax Foundation, NYS has the worst business climate in the country. The basic reason: A tax structure based on the belief that businesses can and should pay for more than their fair share. We must reverse this trend. We need to encourage private sector job growth by implementing more practical - and less punitive and cumbersome - and removing mandates so our employers can compete in the global economy.
