12.3.21 Advocacy Alert: NYS Agencies Will Add Small Biz Liaisons

Governor Kathy Hochul recently signed legislation that will create “small business liaisons” at five key state agencies.  

The position will be created within the Departments of: 

  • Agriculture and Markets 
  • Environmental Conservation 
  • Labor 
  • Transportation 
  • Taxation and Finance 

The liaisons, who must be existing agency employees, are tasked with: 

  • Serving as a direct point of contact for small businesses 
  • Providing basic information on the agency & regulations 
  • Helping businesses navigate the agency and find correct points of contact 

This legislation will help small businesses navigate state bureaucracy. The BNP submitted a memorandum in support of this legislation in February.  

The BNP thanks Sen. George Borrello, Sen. Ed Rath, and Asm. Michael Norris for co-sponsoring this important legislation.  

We will share with you the contact information for each liaison once appointed.
