Advocates at State Capitol for Scaffold Law Reform Advocacy Day

ALBANY, N.Y.--Hundreds of advocates convened at the State Capitol on Tuesday to urge Governor Andrew Cuomo and Legislators to reform New York's Scaffold Law.

Hundreds of advocated convened for the reforming of the Scaffold Law, which will allow Minority/Women Owned Businesses to remain open and communities to build needed classrooms and hospitals.

"The Scaffold Law drives up the cost of every public and private construction project in New York because building owners and contractors are held "absolutely liable" for "elevation related injuries," regardless of the facts of the case, or the real liability for the injury. The time has come to change this antiquated law," said, Heather C. Briccetti, Esq., President and CEO of The Business Council of New York State, Inc.
