Murphy Looking to Slash Red Tape

Kudos to State Senator Terrence Murphy who has taken out his cutting shears in the fight against government red tape, an issue the BCW has highlighted in its Annual Legislative Agenda. Murphy has proposed a bill that would make it easier for individuals, small businesses, local government and advocacy groups to get advance notice of rule changes. By requiring agencies to update rules changes on their websites, agencies can publish these changes only once instead of twice a year as now required, saving printing costs, energy and time.

“The Business Council of Westchester is in strong support of Senator Murphy’s bill to amend the State Administrative Procedures Act. This bill will make the complicated regularity agenda process more transparent for the business community,” said John Ravitz, Executive Vice President and COO of the BCW. “This bill is another example of how Senator Murphy is looking to make New York State more business friendly, by ensuring that businesses have any opportunity to make comments on regulatory issues affecting their industry.”
