This year’s school budget vote was the first to take place after Governor Andrew Cuomo convinced the legislature to adopt the property tax cap.
The governor says the tax cap imposed “fiscal discipline.”
He says he’s pleased that few schools attempted to override the cap, and that most schools kept tax increases to a minimum, and were approved by voters.
He says tax payers, as well as state government, are tapped out.
“At one point, there is no more money, and that’s where we are now,” said Cuomo.
