Consortium members have been in Albany the past three days…

·        Meeting with Senator Krueger  (bless her) to discuss her circuit breaker bill which we are supporting…….S 4239

·        Meeting with financial experts in Senator Malcolm Smith’s office about the provisions of S4239. The Senate has been very pro-active on property tax relief this session.

·        Meeting with an assembly leader  to make sure we have a companion bill to Sen. Krueger’s in the Assembly….

·        Having a conference with press and legislators outlining The bill..it is identical with the circuit breaker provision of the Omnibus Relief and Reform bill

·       Discussing an addition to the circuit breaker bill which assures taxpayers that the reform of the property tax ( not just immediate relief via the circuit breaker) will go forward.  This Bill is a first BIG step.

·       Discussing  the financing of relief and reform.

 

NOW IS THE TIME FOR ALL GOOD TAXPAYERS TO COME TO THE AID OF THE OMNIBUS CONSORTIUM and OF ALL PROPERTY TAXPAYERS ……..get busy guys!

·        Call Majority Leader Sheldon Silver 518-455-3791 or fax him at 518-455-5459…he has stated the Assembly passed a circuit breaker in the last session and he supports the circuit breaker concept.  We want him to reframe the assembly bill to be reconcilable with Sen. Krueger’s bill

     S 4239 in the Senate.

 

·        Ask the majority leader to introduce an Omnibus like circuit breaker to match Sen. Krueger’s circuit breaker because this is the best all around circuit breaker.

 

If you haven’t called your Senator do so now and ask him/her to add his/her name to the Krueger Bill.

We can not do this without the support of the people who need tax relief.

The circuit breaker is major relief.

But the window of opportunity will close . Success is a phone call or a fax away.
