UTICA, N.Y. -- Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul made four stops across the state Monday, and one of them was right in Utica.
Hochul is trying to rally people to contact their state legislators to urge them to support Governor Cuomo’s tax fairness for the middle class campaign.
The governor announced his set of tax break proposals two weeks ago.
Two of the big items in his plan are the phasing in of middle class tax cuts over the next several years and making the property tax cap of 2 percent permanent.
“Being family is here helping businesses thrive and prosper and grow we have to do something about taxes and so the governor is out there today working with our legislature to try and enact a permanent tax of 2 percent,” Hochul said.
Hochul is hoping the support will be there for the governor’s tax fairness for the middle class campaign in this year’s budget which is due on April 1.
