Statement On The Newly Announced New York State Budget Deal

Internet Association New York State Executive Director John Olsen released the following statement on the newly announced New York State budget deal:

“Today is a great day for innovation, consumers, and entrepreneurial spirits here in New York. By opening the entire state to ridesharing and rejecting an unprecedented and burdesome online marketplace tax, Albany is sending a clear message that New York State is open for business . We applaud Governor Cuomo, Leader Flanagan, and Speaker Heastie for embracing the future while standing up for middle class families and small businesses fighting to thrive in today’s economy.”
