State Senator Hugh T. Farley (R, C, I - Schenectady) announced on April 12th that he and his Senate Majority colleagues are urging the Assembly to act on a meaningful property tax cap bill. The Senate overwhelmingly passed Governor Cuomo’s property tax cap legislation with bipartisan support earlier this year.
Senate and Assembly Republicans are offering the " The Cap" petitions in their districts and online through their websites and Facebook pages. Taxpayers can also access the petition at PassTheTaxCap.com . The petition urges taxpayers to sign on to " us send a loud and clear message to the Assembly that homeowners in our community want a cap on property taxes, and they want it now!"
