Gov. Andrew Cuomo issued a tacit, albeit somewhat non-committal endorsement of negotiations for tax cap.

“We must pass a real, meaningful property tax cap for the people of the State of New York. I understand that it takes a good faith negotiations to get that done in a democratic process.”

Recall that Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos is worried any negotiations on the proposal between the governor and the Assembly would result in a “watered down” version of the governor’s own proposed 2 percent cap. He reiterated that concern today at a news conference calling on the Assembly to approve the governor’s cap.

Cuomo has said previously that negotiations are needed to get the cap in place.
