Comptroller Stringer’s Red Tape Commission

Good afternoon everyone,

The NYC Comptroller’s office asked me to forward the info below.

Comptroller Stringer’s Red Tape Commission is made up of small business leaders, regulatory experts and advocates from around the City who are dedicated to finding ways to help business owners cut through the red tape. For too long, government has been an obstacle rather than a partner in the success of small businesses. A complex maze of regulations and red tape have stifled innovation, slowed business growth, and discouraged potential entrepreneurs from opening their doors in our city.

The duty of the commission is simple: to listen to business owners and entrepreneurs directly, across all five boroughs, with the purpose of completing an independent, bottom-up review of regulations that affect business formation and growth across the five boroughs. Below is a link to a survey that will help inform the commission’s recommendations and proposals to create a better and stronger NYC economy.

All the best,
