Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos seems to be under increasing pressure to negotiate with Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver on a property tax cap.

But the Long Island Republican said in a radio interview today that he would wait and see if the governor proposed a compromise bill later this year.

“I’d like to see what the governor would propose, so I’m going to hold my comments until the governor says what is acceptable,” Skelos told the Post’s Fred Dicker on Talk 1300 AM this morning.

Dicker mentioned the open speculation that Senate Republicans are balking at approving anything other than the 2 percent cap, which the chamber already did on Jan. 31.

It is highly unlikely a 2 percent cap as proposed by Cuomo would pass the Democratic-led Assembly, and, as often happens in Albany, a compromise bill would have to be negotiated. Silver, a Manhattan Democrat, has said he would support a cap on local property taxes, but has not indicated if he would support the 2 percent or rate of inflation cap.

The governor himself does not have the same leverage he did on the budget or on a potential ethics bill, where he has suggested he would use a Moreland Commission to investigate legislators if a reform bill doesn’t pass.

But Skelos said he would hold firm on the cap and rejected the governor’s statements the other day suggesting their would be some room to alter his bill.

“I’d like to see what you’re going to negotiate, if you water it down, then there’s no reason to negotiate,” Skelos said. “I believe we should have the hard cap.”

Throwing doubt on whether Senate Republicans think a cap is necessary was Sen. John Flanagan, who said earlier this year that a cap wouldn’t be doable without significant mandate relief legislation.

“Most of them have indicated that they are happy with a property tax cap if there is significant mandate relief,” Skelos said of his 32-member conference local governments. “I think it would be great if the governor and the assembly speaker came up with a great package for mandate relief along with a hard cap.”
