WOODBURY - A property tax cap and the legalization of gay marriage are two key measures on Gov. Andrew Cuomo's (D-N.Y.) agenda before the current legislative session ends.
Two weeks after state legislative leaders reached an agreement on a property tax bill, they've yet to vote on it, apparently because of a provision in the Assembly's version calling for the law to expire in eight years.
State Senate supporters don't like that provision, but both sides say a compromise is likely to be worked out. What's not so clear is whether same-sex marriage will become legal in New York.
Political analyst Mike Dawidziak says whatever the outcome, it will be a busy final week for state lawmakers.
"They've got some very big, historic things on the table and I think that they would like to get them all done," Dawidziak says. "Cuomo has staked a lot in getting these things done and as I've said before, this is a guy who doesn't like to lose." NY Assembly proposes its property tax cap bill
