NY Ag Tax Cap Signature Needed



New York Farm Bureau is urging the state's farmers to contact Governor Cuomo to urge him to sign the tax cap legislation, which was recently passed by both Assembly and Senate.

High property taxes present a huge challenge to family farms in NY. Ours are among the highest in the nation forcing us to compete with farmers in other states at a considerable disadvantage. You can use the Farm Bureau website to send the governor an email, or use this information from his office to call or send a letter. 

Hope we can get the word out and help make NY a better state for farming.

Linda, thanks! I hope he signs the thing. He has lost a lot of ground upstate because of his stupid gun bill, so maybe he will want our votes.
