Legislative Bill Tracking

State Issues

Governor Cuomo announced that he has called on the Department of Financial Services to investigate the shutdown of MyPayrollHR, a Clifton Park, NY based payroll company which closed last week.

Federal Issues

Senate Banking Committee Chairman Mike Crapo confirmed that he is trying to get a cannabis banking bill ready for a vote. NYBA is planning to launch a grassroots letter-writing campaign next week to urge New York’s Congressional delegation to support the SAFE Banking Act, which would allow banks to serve cannabis-related businesses in states where the activity is legal and prohibit federal regulators from taking action against a bank solely because cannabis is involved.Watch NYBA publications next week for more details.
