Business Council launches Fix New York e-advocacy Web site
ALBANY—As part of The Business Council of New York State Inc., continuing effort to reduce the cost of doing business in New York, The Business Council has launched a new e-advocacy Web site to give business owners, their employees and the public the ability to make their voices heard in Albany.
The new Fix New York Web site (www.FIXNYS.org) allows users to send letters, e-mails or faxes to the Governor as well as state and federal legislators. Unlike other sites, our Fix New York allows visitors to obtain voter registration information, track voting records of their local, state and federal representatives and track candidates in their area.
The Business Council mobilizes thousands of employers on key issues. But that is not enough. Now we have a way for companies to rally their workers, too. We encourage you and your co-workers to get involved. Visit Fix New York and help us make a difference.
The Web site provides the latest news from local and statewide news papers on issues that Business Council members say are important to them and our economy. It gives visitors the ability to find their local chamber of commerce, links to state government sites and other vital information that will allow them to make informed decisions.
