Assemblyman Bill Reilich (R,C,I-Greece) is disappointed at the Legislature’s unwillingness to tackle the big problems facing New Yorkers as the legislative session comes to a close.
“I am deeply disturbed at the lack of resolve that my assembly colleagues on the other side of the aisle are showing when it comes to addressing the real needs of New Yorkers. With the economy in a slump and rising fuel and food costs draining the pockets of hardworking New Yorkers, it was the duty of the Legislature to provide meaningful relief from skyrocketing fuel costs and ever-increasing taxes, especially property taxes.
Instead of delivering long-term property tax relief by instituting a property tax cap, the Majority has squandered another opportunity to deliver needed relief to New York homeowners and has instead used its time and energy to pass a series of one-house bills that will have little or no impact on the lives of most New Yorkers. The residents of this great state should be unhappy with the lack of real results this year. I know I am.”
