In a statement, coalition member Gary LaBarbera, President of the NYC Building & Construction Trades Council of Greater New York, said:"New York has long been a leader when it comes to worker safety, and we can't afford to break that tradition. Weakening the Scaffold Safety Law would put thousands of working people's lives at direct risk. If the insurance industry shares our concerns about construction site safety, they shouldn't stand in the way of real debate and should let the real facts come out."
