Senator Joe Addabbo Votes "NO" on Property Tax Cap Bill

No Relief for Residents of New York City

NYS Senator Joseph P. Addabbo, Jr. (D-Queens), released the following statement on why he rejected S.2706, the property tax cap bill, when it came to a vote yesterday in the Senate:

"While I would have supported a true property tax cap that benefits all people, S.2706 does not include any property tax relief for residents of my district or anyone else in New York City who are specifically excluded in this bill. Therefore, I could not support this bill that could actually hurt my constituents."
