Watch LRANY Executive Director, Tom Stebbins, discuss LRANY’s recent study release and needed reforms to the ‘Scaffold Law’ on Capital Tonight with Liz Benjamin. Stebbins explains the contents of “Power of Attorney: Exploring the Influence of the Trial Bar in New York State” a study released this week by LRANY which found trial lawyers spend millions to influence New York State politics.
Tom is also joined by Mary Ellen Belding, owner of MWBE business – SRS Contracting in Rochester, NY. She has been unable to obtain general liability insurance because of the Scaffold Law, despite never being sued. Without insurance, SRS will be forced to close in 17 business days, leaving thirty workers without a job.
