Ball: “Albany, Get Yer Cap In Gear. Just Do it!”

Demands Up or Down Property Tax Cap Vote In Extraordinary Session

7/27/2010 - In a brief statement about Governor Paterson’s proclamation for extraordinary session of the legislature to begin Wednesday, July 28, Assemblyman Greg Ball (R, C, I – Patterson) demanded that the legislature take an up-or-down vote on Property Tax Caps.

“Two million New Yorker’s have left this state, and two million more are ready to follow their lead. The people paying the bills, small business owners, working families and taxpayers, are leaving this state in droves and this failed social experiment we call Albany, funded by taxes and backdoor borrowing, is soon to come to an end. New York’s property tax problem is a crisis of enormous proportion, so horrific in scope and size that communities from Montauk to Niagara are feeling the crushing burden. The Governor created fanfare earlier this year for mentioning a property tax cap during his State of the State speech, now it is time, with the legislature returning to Albany for extraordinary session, and with legislators in campaign mode to get it done.”
Ball first introduced and continues to be the Prime Sponsor on bills that introduce a Property Tax Cap and a Senior School Tax Freeze.
