2018 Legislative Agenda (2)

The New York State Legislature closed out the 2018 Legislative Session as of June 20 and ruled on two bills that are important to the accounting profession. The NYSSCPA is firmly committed to maintaining the strength and integrity of the accounting profession, and has worked with both Assembly Members and State Senators on both sides of the aisle to advocate for bills covering Continued Professional Education (CPE) requirements and firm ownership.

Political Action Committee

The NYSSCPA Political Action Committee serves as the NYSSCPA’s collective voice in Albany. The NYSSCPA distributes NYSSCPA PAC donations to New York political candidates who understand the profession’s needs and concerns. When you donate to the PAC, you help send a clear message to legislators that issues important to the profession affect the wider business community and the public interest—and that we will be heard.

Take Action

Advocacy Campaigns

The NYSSCPA consistently monitors Albany for new legislation relevant to the profession. Our Government Affairs Team reviews and presents key aspects of such laws to NYSSCPA leadership so it may gauge the legislation’s potential impact on the profession in New York State. Once a position is identified, members are often asked to contact their local representatives to help the Society advocate on behalf of the profession.

Key Contact Program

NYSSCPA members who have identified him/herself as someone who has either a personal or business connection with a legislator or political party official in New York State and is willing to share that connection with the Society can participate in the Key Contact program. The Society can then utilize those connections to open the flow of communication with lawmakers or state officials so that we may share our position more effectively.
