Golden Blasts Legislation That Hurts Small Business Owners and Unfairly Rewards Street Vendors
Brooklyn – State Senator Martin J. Golden (R-C-I, Brooklyn), a former small business owner, merchant leader and member of the New York City Council, today is emphatically criticizing legislation being considered today by the New York City Council Consumer Affairs Committee that unfairly rewards street vendors.
The NYC Council Committee on Consumer Affairs will consider two bills, Int. 434-2010 and Int. 435-2010, legislation that reduces the maximum fine amount on violations, and legislation that would make increased violation amounts only applicable when a the same class of violation is repeatedly committed.
