The Consumer Protection Board (CPB) of New York is taking the initiative to try to learn how New York State can better protect consumers who contract for home improvements.  CPB is inviting consumers, industry representatives, home improvement contractors, state and local government officials, law enforcement, and other interested parties to offer comments at:
