NEW YORK CITY -- The New York State Automatic Vending Association is urging industry members to attend a birthday celebration for Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Jan. 7. Its goal is to keep in close touch with state lawmakers and the governor, who vetoed a vending tax relief bill last month that the trade group has been advocating for more than five years.

The governor's 55th birthday gala will be held at New York City's Waldorf Astoria and begin at 6:30 p.m.

"Maintaining our visibility and presence with those in and around Albany as we press on with our tax-relief efforts is one very important step towards our future success," said NYSAVA president Brian Gill, Next Generation Vending (Canastota, NY).

The bill Gov. Andrew Cuomo vetoed on Dec. 19 would exempt food and beverage vending machine purchases of less than $1.50 from New York State sales tax. | SEE STORY

The NYSAVA campaign is intended to update a measure that raised the exemption on vended sales to 75¢, enacted more than a decade ago. It would assist the vending industry to remain competitive with other retail channels. The association raised almost $50,000 through its membership meeting in October to aid in its lobbying efforts on behalf of this tax relief legislation.
