Overburdened taxpayers in the Capital Region and across the state are desperate for relief. The Tax Cap was a great first step but to actually cut property taxes, county governments need relief from unfunded mandates handed down by the State. Medicaid is largest mandated budget item for every county in New York State and is the primary reason that New Yorkers pay the highest property taxes in the nation. I have authored legislation that will remove the Medicaid burden from county government, allowing local government to reduce local taxes, not just slow their growth.
Over 100 state and local officials from around the state have signaled their support for this bipartisan legislation, and you can too.
