Reforms

From century-old regulations on construction to legislation that tilts the collective bargaining process in favor of public sector unions, New York is flush with laws that need reform so we can repair our economy and lower our tax burden. Yet each year, reform fails as taxpayer dependent organizations push for the status quo to remain. We must introduce and adopt practical solutions that will reverse our negative trends and move New York toward a better future.
