AN ACT to amend the general municipal law and the state finance law,  in
  relation  to  establishing  the  real  property  tax  relief and local
  government mandate reform act

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. This act shall be known and may be cited as the "real prop-
erty tax relief and local government mandate reform act".
  S  2.  Legislative  findings and declarations.  The legislature hereby
finds and determines that real property taxes in New York state are  too
high,  and that the burden that they place upon our citizens, homeowners
and businesses, is making it difficult for New  York  state  to  thrive,
prosper and succeed.
  The  legislature  further  finds  and  determines that the only way to
realistically reduce the real property tax  burden  upon  our  citizens,
homeowners and businesses, is to place a comprehensive approach in state
law  which  controls  costs  and  spending  for  local  governments, and
provides significant mandate relief with respect to their  fiscal  obli-
gations.
  The legislature additionally finds and determines that a comprehensive
approach  of  capping  property taxes, controlling governmental employee
benefit costs, and providing significant mandate relief to local govern-
ments will promote the controlling of the cost and  spending  for  local
governments,  as  well  as helping to provide significant mandate relief
with respect to their future fiscal obligations.
  The legislature finally finds and determines that this act seeks to be
a part of a comprehensive approach to reduce real property taxes  across
the  state by controlling of governmental employee benefit costs and the
provision of significant mandate relief to local governments.

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
