Bob Duffy: New York State Must Intervene in Rochester City School District
There is no greater inhibitor to the future economic success of the Rochester and Finger Lakes region than the outcomes produced by the Rochester City School District. That is why Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce calls upon the New York State legislature to support State Education Commissioner MaryEllen Elia’s plan to take control of and enact sweeping change in our city’s school system.Learn More

“High Workers’ Compensation costs continue to be a major concern for New York employers. Thanks largely to the leadership of Rochester Chamber, its Workers’ Compensation Committee, and other business partners, significant headway has been achieved the past two years to pass much-needed reforms. As a result, this year the New York State Loss Cost levels are decreasing for 98% of the Worker Classification Codes. As always, we have more work to do, but this is great news for New York State employers. Rochester Chamber remains an effective advocate for employers – it gets things done!”
