Senator Simcha Felder (D-Brooklyn) has signed onto the Senate GOP’s letter urging the removal of the proposed extension of the utility tax surcharge from the Executive Budget. In 2009, former Governor Paterson enacted a tax surcharge on electric, gas, steam and non-municipal water services that has cost taxpayers almost $2.5 billion over the last four years. The 18-a assessment – which has increased utility bills for nearly every taxpayer in the state – is scheduled to expire on March 31, 2014.
Senator Simcha Felder (D-Brooklyn) has been appointed by Senate Republican Leader Dean Skelos to head the new Sub-Committee on New York City Education, as well as the Children and Families Committee. Felder has made education reform a key focus of his legislative agenda. According to the Senate rules, “any bill referenced to the Education Committee whose subject matter shall solely impact education matters in New York City” will be referred to the sub-committee.
