LRANY Executive Director Statement on President Obama’s Visit to the Tappan Zee Bridge

As President Obama visits the Tappan Zee Bridge to call on Congress for more infrastructure spending, advocates for Scaffold Law reform remind the President that millions of federal infrastructure dollars are wasted each year because of the Scaffold Law. “It’s important for the President to understand the massive consequences that this outdated New York State law has on our infrastructure spending. The Scaffold Law is expected, conservatively, to add at least $100m to the cost of the new Tappan Zee Bridge,” said Tom Stebbins, Executive Director of the Lawsuit Reform Alliance of New York. “Our federal representatives need to understand that every year New York takes a large portion of federal money and essentially throws it into the Hudson River by wasting it on an outdated law that only exists in New York.”
