Gov. Cuomo, Speaker Silver and Majority Leader Skelos agreed on a tax cap plan that would remain in effect as long as rent regulations continued. Skelos says he hasn’t agreed to specific sunset language or changes in regulations yet, but Silver’s draft bill says the cap” shall remain in full force and effect only so long as the public emergency requiring the regulation and control of residential rents and evictions and all such laws providing for such regulation and control continue.”
We know Albany pols like to link unrelated issues in negotiations, but linking them in statute like this is ridiculous. Even Silver said the next day that the final bill would probably have a date certain.
