Uniondale, Long Island, New York, May 3, 2006 – On Friday, April 28, 2006, Ruskin Moscou Faltischek, P.C. sponsored a special seminar held at Molloy College that gave attendees an in-depth look at New York State’s newly enacted lobbying and procurement law. Guest speakers included State Comptroller Alan Hevesi, who discussed the law and its ramifications, and Assemblyman Richard Brodsky, author of the new legislation, who gave the audience his views on why the law was enacted and what it means for companies across New York State. Attorney John DeMaro made a presentation on the components of the new law and pitfalls to be avoided.Former New York State Assemblyman Arthur “Jerry” Kremer, the forum’s moderator, noted, “This drastic revision of the state’s contract procurement and lobbying law applies to governments at every level and hundreds of Long Island businesses that are currently doing business with the public sector — or want to do business with it. A failure to comply with the law could lead to a company being barred from doing any future business at the loss of countless dollars.”
