The state’s property-tax cap expires next year, and new Senate Majority Leader John Flanagan introduced legislation Friday to make it permanent and decouple it from rent-control laws in New York City.
The move by Flanagan, R-Suffolk County, and Senate Republicans is their latest attempt to make the tax cap, put into effect in 2011, a permanent law amid protests from schools, unions and local governments.
Flanagan said in a statement Sunday that the Senate would act as early as this week to approve the bill.
More mandates on schools, less money to carry those resources out.
That's the neoliberal game here.
