Sign Senator Klein's Petition to Bring Property Tax Cap Legislation to Assembly Floor

Dear Homeowners,

The State Senate twice this year has passed a cap to reign in skyrocketing property taxes, only to have our proposals blocked from a vote in the Assembly. I have met with numerous property taxpayers from not only Westchester, but from across New York State. These hard working New Yorkers have been demanding property tax relief for some time and have received no help from Assembly leadership. Please join me in signing this petition and demand that the Assembly put this critically important legislation to a vote on their floor. The legislation can be viewed here: http://open.nysenate.gov/legislation/api/1.0/html/bill/S67005

Sincerely,

Jeffrey D. Klein, SD-34
