Cuomo to Call Lawmakers Back to Consider NYC Property-Tax Rebate

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo plans to call lawmakers back for a special session to handle unfinished business, including the extension of a property-tax rebate for more than 300,000 New York City residents that expires June 30, said the Assembly speaker’s spokesman.

New York City lawmakers raised the issue yesterday, the last day of the session, and Cuomo opted not to use his power to put bills through the Legislature with less than three days notice. Instead, he’ll bring lawmakers back to Albany, the state capital, said Mike Whyland, a spokesman for Speaker Sheldon Silver, a Manhattan Democrat.
