Lawmakers: Budget to have middle class rebates
ALBANY (AP) – Legislative leaders say they and Gov. Andrew Cuomo plan to provide $350 rebates to middle class families as part of the state budget.
The tax rebates would go to families with a household income of $40,000 to $300,000, with one or more children. Cuomo and legislative leaders continue to negotiate final elements of the budget.
Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver and Sens. Jeffrey Klein and Dean Skelos say the new element to the budget still being negotiated is widely supported in the closed-door discussions.
