BALL & ASTORINO CALL FOR SPECIAL SESSION ON UNFUNDED MANDATE RELIEF

Brewster, N.Y. – 9/29/2012 – With the possibility of a special session in the near future, Senator Greg Ball (Patterson – R, C) will host a press conference with Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino to call on Governor Andrew Cuomo and the State Legislature to take an up-or-down vote before January 1, 2013 to pass a comprehensive mandate relief package.

“The pressing issue of property tax relief is directly linked to our ability to deliver comprehensive and lasting mandate relief to our school districts and local governments. From burdensome testing requirements, local reporting nightmares, administrative bureaucracy to very specific and costly MS4 requirements there are a myriad of opportunities for Albany to deliver relief,” said Senator Greg Ball. “Step one begins with doing no more harm and immediately ending legislative action on all future unfunded mandates. Step two is to hold a special session and require an up or down vote on a comprehensive mandate relief package.”

What: Unfunded Mandate Relief Press Conference

Who: Senator Greg Ball, Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino, Assemblyman Robert Castelli, Supervisor Joan Maybury and County Legislator Mike Smith.

When: Monday, October 1st at 11:15 AM

Where: Mount Pleasant Town Hall: One Town Hall Plaza Valhalla, NY 10595
