Commission on Property Tax Relief

Monday, the Commission on Property Tax Relief, led by the most conservative Democrat in New York, Tom Suozzi, released their report. It can be read here. It came out with 32 recommendations including -
School District consolidation
An annual property tax increase cap
Cost evaluation requirements on any new state mandate including the economic impact at both the state and local level
To be honest, Tom Suozzi was a better candidate than Eliot Spitzer in 2006. I think if he were in office, New York may be in a different place than it currently is. That said, the Commission's results are interesting and I await to see how the legislature actually copes with them.
