Senator Foley fought to put tax dollars back in your pocket and protect your home.
TELL THE ASSEMBLY TO MAKE IT THE LAW.
“Keeping property taxes down has always been a primary focus of mine. This legislation will help reign in spending and force accountability. It needs to be made into law, and I need your help. Sign onto my petition, and let’s tell the Assembly that it’s time to do the right thing for taxpayers.”
Senator Foley voted twice this year to cap property taxes for families.
Senator Foley’s plan would:
Cap Out-of-Control School Property Taxes
Mandatory tax cap with no increases over 2% this year
Give You The Power To Keep Taxes Low
Local voters could impose a tougher limit or override cap if necessary
On June 28th the senate and the assembly passed a budget bill that included $600 million in restoration of funding for New York's schools. Long Island was to recieve $83 million in restored funding, and schools within the 3rd Senate District were to receive the highest restoration amount of any other senate district in the state. The governor vetoed this funding restoration the same night it passed. This means that schools will not have the additional money the legislature was trying to provide to them to help offset property tax increases.
