State Senator Jim Seward announced Wednesday senate passage of a comprehensive package of legislation to make it less expensive and more efficient to do business in New York. The package included a bill sponsored by Senator Seward which would reverse a costly regulatory change that is driving up health care expenses for some employers and employees. The bills have been sent to the assembly, except for the one that requires state agencies to pay small businesses within 15 days of receipt of an invoice and would allow state agencies one year to implement these changes to their prompt payment system. That has already received assembly approval and will be sent to the governor.
