“Today, we finally learned the ugly truth behind the governor's proposed STAR freeze,” said Morinello. “The Deputy Tax Commissioner Nonie Manion came clean and admitted the proposed STAR freeze is a tax increase. New York is already the most heavily taxed state in the country and we can't afford to continue this trend. I'm in the business of reducing taxes, not adding onto them.”
