Learn How New York’s Property Tax Cap Impacts You

Any tax increase above the cap will need a supermajority approval by more than 60 percent of the voters in a school district or two-thirds of the governing body in a county, city, town, village or special district.

“Taxation Without Representation” – Fight To Stop The RGGI Cap & Trade Tax

November 17, 2011 J

“Taxation Without Representation" - Cap & Trade in New York”

CLICK HERE TO SEND YOUR REPRESENTATIVES IN ALBANY A MESSAGE: STOP THE RGGI CAP & TRADE TAX NOW!

For the past three years, New York has participated in the RGGI Cap & Trade scheme without the authorization of the state Legislature! Already this Cap & Trade energy tax has cost New York businesses and ratepayers a staggering $327 MILLION!

Now it is up to you and me to fight back!

Americans for Prosperity will be educating citizens about this Cap & Trade scheme that threatens to drive our electricity rates through the roof and kill thousands of jobs across New York.

New Yorkers already pay the second highest electricity rates in the nation and we cannot afford this additional tax on our electricity bills!
