Governor Andrew M. Cuomo paid a visit to The Business Council’s Board of Directors meeting. He reviewed his executive budget proposal, thanked The Business Council for its participation in the Pataki-McCall tax commission as well as for its support of Casino Gaming referendum approved by voters last November. During his 45-minute session, the Governor also fielded questions from Board Members on a range of issues from taxes and energy to education and economic development.
The Governor’s visit, and the visits by key members of his staff that have occurred at recent Board meetings, are further evidence of the strength of The Business Council’s voice as the leading advocate for business in the state.
