LIA Lauds Progress on Property Tax Cap

"The Long Island Association applauds NYS Assembly Speaker Shelly Silver for joining with Governor Andrew Cuomo and Majority Leader Dean Skelos on a proposed property tax cap" said Kevin S. Law, President and CEO of the LIA. "We are encouraged that real progress is being made on a property tax cap and encourage the parties to continue to work together till it is approved as our businesses on Long Island suffer from some of the highest property taxes in the state and in order to remain competitive they need property tax relief ." said Law.
