The Assembly proposal for the 2 percent cap on local property taxes is close to what Senate Republicans already approved, spokesman Scott Reif said in a statement.

“We’re reviewing the bill now and will formally conference it later today, but it includes many of the things Senate Republicans have been pushing for three years, since we first passed a property tax cap,” he said.

The Senate approved the bill on Jan. 31, but the Assembly has yet to take up the proposal by Gov. Andrew Cuomo for a “hard” 2 percent cap.

The Assembly proposal unveiled today exempts the cap from the growth in pensions and allows for unexpected growth in the tax base.

“Senator Skelos has insisted on a strong cap and elevated the property tax cap as a post-budget issue this year,” Reif sad. “We view this as a positive development in our efforts to enact a property tax cap.”
