WAY TO GO LIZ!!! Dec.22
Senator Liz Kreuger, Chair of the Senate Select Comm. on Budget and Tax Reform, has issued a report on her committee’s meeting on Tax Exempts which we attended and blogged a while back.
This is part of her ongoing work on the property tax crisis.
However, unlike the usual run of politicians, Sen. Kreuger does not just investigate and report. She gets it…. and she acts on her findings….
To our immense satisfaction, she has been moving quickly, methodically, and inexorably towards property tax relief and reform.
Cara Matthews (always good-Gannett, Albany Bureau) gives details of Liz’ findings on tax exempts… and repeats Liz’ intention to pass her (and our Omnibus) bill that would institute a REAL circuit breaker and start reform of the property tax.

Sen. Kreuger is an exceptional lawmaker.
She goes after the facts without any pre-conceived notions or hidden agendas. That’s unusual, believe me.
Working with Sen. Kreuger and a few other excellent lawmakers we are finally having the conversation that will take us to relief and reform for homeowners and renters.
It’s an intelligent, straightforward, and productive conversation…
…this Senator makes you think state government could actually be made to work….if only there were a LOT more like her in Albany….(oh well, hope springs eternal)
But that doesn’t mean we don’t have a whole helluva lot of work to do…on the contrary… it just means sometimes we can enjoy the work.
