Senator Kaplan Passes Small Business Support Legislation From Harlem To The Hudson

March 11, 2021

This week, Senator Anna M. Kaplan passed legislation to support and promote New York’s small businesses who are still struggling to recover from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The legislation will help small businesses to get direct assistance from New York State agencies and regulators, and also promote the State’s local manufacturing sector.

The bills passed on the same week that Senator Kaplan’s landmark small business commercial eviction and foreclosure moratorium was enacted into law.

“As our state recovers from the coronavirus pandemic, we need to do more to support our small businesses so that they can continue to be an engine for job creation and economic activity in our communities,” said Senator Anna M. Kaplan.”We have also learned valuable lessons during the pandemic about the importance of local supply chains and the manufacturing of critical needs like PPE. I’m proud that the legislation I passed this week will help small businesses deal with the government with fewer headaches, and will promote the manufacturing of local PPE and all the jobs that come with it.”
