Business Council welcomes Governor Cuomo’s call to Keep the Cap

ALBANY, N.Y.—“We welcome Governor Cuomo echoing our call to keep New York’s very successful property tax cap in place,” said Heather C. Briccetti, president and CEO of The Business Council of New York State, Inc. “Less than a month ago, we joined with the state’s other leading employer groups, and Senate Majority Leader John Flanagan, in calling on the Legislature and the governor to make the tax cap permanent. Remember, we are just beginning to see the benefits of the cap and already families and businesses have saved $7.6 billion. There’s a reason 73% of New Yorkers support keeping the cap. Tax cap permanence remains our top priority as we near the end of session. We encourage all New Yorkers to visit www.keepthecapny.com to see how much their region has saved.”
