Advocacy Agenda

2024 Advocacy Agenda - Web Header
Good things are happening in Buffalo Niagara.

The signs of progress are apparent, and others are taking notice. Just a few months ago, our region, along with the Rochester and Syracuse metros, was designated a federal Technology Hub by the Department of Commerce.

But every win in Buffalo Niagara is hard-earned.

That’s because our economic climate has a deserved reputation as being one of the most highly taxed and overly regulated in the country. The Tax Foundation has again ranked New York as having the second worst business tax climate in the United States.

Course correction is possible, especially if government – at all levels – works with employers to make our region more competitive, leverage our distinct assets, and meet our biggest challenges head on.

To that end, the Buffalo Niagara Partnership offers our 2024 Advocacy Agenda, a set of policy priorities designed to move our regional economy forward. We look forward to collaborating with you in this effort.
