Assemblyman Montesano addresses crowd at Albany Tax Cap Rally.
The Assembly Minority Conference has long been an outspoken proponent of a property tax cap and recently attempted to force a vote on the issue. The Assembly Majority blocked a vote and New Yorkers still wait for critical property tax relief.
“The rally was a good way of letting the Assembly Majority know how important this issues is and how much it means to real New Yorkers,” said Montesano. “We cannot afford to wait any longer - New Yorkers need and deserve a cap now. We also need to find ways to help local governments and school districts cut costs by providing meaningful mandate relief. It is time to start rebuilding New York and the cap is a great first step.”
