SENATOR HANNON URGES ASSEMBLY TO PASS TAX CAP
The Senate overwhelmingly passed Governor Cuomo’s property tax cap legislation with bipartisan support earlier this year. Senator Kemp Hannon is urging the Assembly to follow suit to enact a meaningful property tax cap bill.
“The Assembly must pass the tax cap,” said Hannon. “With the highest taxes in the nation and the economy still struggling, New Yorkers deserve and need this relief now,” Hannon continued.
In addition, the Senate will be proposing and passing extensive mandate relief measures which must go hand-in-hand with a property tax cap to give school districts and local governments greater flexibility to spend tax dollars on local priorities, rather than to address state mandates.
