Walter: Cut Red Tape, Grow Jobs in Upstate New York

Assemblyman Raymond Walter (R,C,I-Amherst) announced his support of the Senate Republicans and Independent Democratic Council’s (IDC) plan to cut the burdensome red tape that continues to restrict job growth and choke the upstate economy. The Senate Majority Coalition’s package of bills, which takes aim at unnecessary government regulations, unfunded mandates, and oppressive economic policies, was lauded by Walter as shining example of bi-partisanship that must be an end-of-session priority.

“My colleagues and I have been trying to fight the leviathan of red-tape that exists in this state for a long time; we may finally have a tangible solution,” said Walter. “Small businesses are the main driver of employment in this state, and regulatory reforms would go a long way in helping to revitalize the drab business climate in this state. Not making these reforms a priority would be a huge mistake.”

 Assemblyman Walter is a sponsor of many Assembly Minority proposals aimed at regulation reform that would accomplish the same goals as the senate coalition.

           “I look forward to working with my friends in the Senate to work out a full package of bills that would accomplish our collective goals: real job growth, economic development, and reducing the burdensome state rules and regulations that our businesses and schools endure.”
