Tenney Supports Bill To Reduce Mandated Costs

Utica, NY (WIBX) – The increase local goverments pay in Medicaid is capped each at three percent.

Assemblywoman Claudia Tenney is supporting a bill that would reduce that increase to two percent, as a way to reduce mandate costs.

“There is no question that property taxpayers need relief; however, a property tax cap without mandate relief spells disaster for many of our school districts and vital local services – and, will continue to push employers out of state,” said Tenney.

According to the New York State Association of Counties, Albany-imposed mandates consume at least 80 percent from local government budgets.

If passed, this legislation will save local governments an estimate of $65 million annually.
