“It’s appalling to know that as rent stabilization and rent control laws are set to expire next month, Governor Andrew Cuomo has declared that the top priorities for his agenda include three other issues: same-sex marriage, a property tax cap, and ethics reform.

STATEMENT BY SENATE MAJORITY LEADER DEAN SKELOS

Today, Governor Cuomo begins a statewide tour in support of his legislation to enact a hard property tax cap in New York.  The Governor is right - - soaring property taxes are driving middle-class families out of their homes and forcing businesses to flee the state.
