The Greater Binghamton Chamber of Commerce apparently doesn’t think much of the New York State budget agreement working its way through Albany.The Chamber has issued a statement saying the budget agreement does little to help Upstate businesses and taxpayers.

The group says there should have been more done to provide tax and mandate relief instead of moving ahead with a higher minimum wage and extension of the energy tax.

The Chamber says while it is encouraged by reforms to unemployment insurance and workers’ compensation, it maintains there is still an anti-business climate in New York.

The Senate has been working on passing individual budget bills for the past several days with the Assembly expected back in Albany Thursday.
