A group of New York state senators say they've identified more than 2,000 rules and regulations that put the state at a competitive disadvantage.
    
The Republican-dominated state Senate majority coalition issued a report Monday calling for a reduction in state regulations they consider to be job killers. They say they have identified 2,219 rules, regulations and practices after meeting with more than 100 business owners, advocacy organizations and individuals at forums around the state.
    
Sen. Patrick Gallivan of Elma said he hopes the report is a first step toward regulatory reform.
