Statement from Assembly Minority Leader Brian M. Kolb (R,I,C-Canandaigua)

“New York’s property tax crisis is crippling our economy and hurting homeowners, businesses and farmers – it’s time for the Assembly Majority to finally bring a property tax cap bill to the floor and hold a vote. No more delays, stall tactics or Albany games – it’s time for a vote. I am calling for an immediate vote on a property tax cap and urging Governor Cuomo to call on Speaker Silver to bring the property tax cap to the floor. The Assembly Minority introduced a property tax cap bill years ago and we are prepared to vote today. Capping property taxes is just the first step; the next step is delivering real cost relief from Albany’s unfunded mandates for local governments and school districts.”
