"For millions of New Yorkers polystyrene products deliver their first cup of coffee and their evening meal, because the products are safe, versatile, and inexpensive," said Heather Briccetti, president and CEO of The Business Council of New York State. "The Business Council believes that a bans on the product is unjustified and will adversely affect not only those who use the products daily but also the many others whom produce polystyrene products.""The state's economy is influenced very heavily by what happens in New York City and this ban will have a direct effect on suppliers, wholesalers and retailers far beyond the city limits," said NFIB/NY State Director Mike Durant. "Small businesses, including those in New York City, should not be force-fed additional government imposed mandates that further stifle our economy."
