RECLAIM NY: American Packaging Deal Hurts NY’s Bad Biz Climate

Reclaim New York offered the following statement on the Governor’s announcement of $14.7 million in tax breaks and Upstate Revitalization Initiative grants for American Packaging Corporation Wednesday:

“More than 280 businesses in New York have warned the state they’re downsizing, moving, or leaving all together this year. Using millions in economic development funny money to help only one company, who just happens to be a political donor of the Governor, does nothing to fix the systemic problems behind our 49th in-the-nation business climate.”

In reality, this approach puts press conferences and promises before results, preventing reform that would help all New Yorkers.”
