21st Century Antitrust Act Update
Senator Michael Gianaris has amended his bill to a B draft, S.933-B. The major provisions that have been changed are here. They include clarification for television and motion picture production, single productions, and certain labor union activities. It makes non-compete and anti-poaching contracts illegal. The new draft also better aligns premerger notification with the federal rules. The Business Council of NYS and the 5 Boro Chamber Alliance are further reviewing the text and will continue their efforts in opposition in both houses, as this bill remains highly problematic for most businesses in the state, large and small.
