In recent years, businesses and families have left
Upstate New York in record numbers. Private
sector job losses have devastated our communities.
New York State’s leaders have not shown a
commitment to job creation and economic
development. In fact, our image over the last
decade has been quite the opposite – we have one
of the worst business climates in the nation.
It is beyond dispute that the state’s policies have
contributed to our economic problems by failing
to meet the economic challenges we face. In
many cases, Albany hasn’t just failed to act – state
government has actually adopted policies that have
made our economic situation even worse.
This report takes a hard look at what New York
State has done right since the beginning of 2011,
and what additional steps will address the high cost of doing business in the state.
