The Senate approved Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s cap on property taxes by a wide 45-17 margin.
Here’s a look at how lawmakers voted. Not a single Republican voted against the bill. The Democrats who voted against the measure represent the New York City region, save for Sen. Ruth Hassell-Thompson, whose district includes Mount Vernon, Westchester County.
Cuomo released a statement this evening praising the Senate for approving the measure.
“I applaud the New York State Senate for promptly passing my property tax cap proposal with strong bipartisan support. This measure will provide a real reprieve to homeowners who are struggling to make ends meet. I, along with countless New Yorkers, look forward to this cap becoming a reality, as taxpayers across the state cannot afford to wait any longer for relief.”
