This week the New York Post published a letter by LRANY’s Adam Morey.
“The Post editorial board is right when it says that fixing New York’s anti-business reputation starts with relaxing burdensome regulations — and, I’d add, this should begin with the litigation-friendly laws that make New York the lawsuit capital of the world (“Job Czar’s No-Win Job,” Aug. 7).
While Gov. Cuomo has backed targeted incentive programs, the real culprit when it comes to upstate’s stagnant economy is the cost of doing business. Policies like the antiquated Scaffold Law waste millions that could be better spent elsewhere. Impacting both private and public works, no construction project in New York is safe from the costly Scaffold Law.”
