Louis J. Coletti published an opinion piece in the Gotham Gazette to further BTEA New York’s efforts to amend Carlos’ Law, which is awaiting Governor Kathy Hochul’s signature.


In the op-ed, Coletti expounded on BTEA New York’s letter sent to the Governor in June, stating that “with some minor changes, Carlos’ Law would act as a deterrent against unscrupulous contractors without punishing the upstanding ones. Instead of keeping MWBEs at arm’s length, it would embrace them.”
