Following Small Business Advocacy Day in Albany, Assemblyman Steve McLaughlin (R,C,I-Schaghticoke) today touted local employers, the great work they do for the community, and reaffirmed his support for New York’s businessmen and women. McLaughlin is continually ranked among the most business-friendly legislators by groups such as Unshackle Upstate and the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB).
“I always enjoy the opportunity to meet with local small-business owners and discuss what we can do in the Legislature to help them create jobs and stay in New York,” McLaughlin said. “Unfortunately, businesses are constantly working around the tens of thousands of pages of regulations and suffocating taxes that the governor and New York City Democrats refuse to address. What many of my progressive colleagues don’t understand is that many small businesses are family owned and their craft is passed down through the generations so their children can have a better life. If we are to create jobs this has to be the year we streamline our business climate, and I plan to lead the charge on that issue.”
Assemblyman McLaughlin represents the 107th district, which consists of parts of Rensselaer, Columbia and Washington counties. For more information,
