State leaders can't seem to curb property taxes

On the day that citizens statewide were voting on school budgets, elected leaders were searching for ways to limit sky-high tax burdens. New York leads the nation on a dubious honor--taxes are 78-percent above the national average. Elected officials took another stab at solving the problem with little success. The easiest path to career suicide in Albany is to defend the current level of taxes. Every elected official says they're too high, yet, for several years now, there's been enough dispute about how to reduce them to make sure nothing substantial ever gets done.
