YONKERS - Gov. Andrew Cuomo visited the Hudson Valley today to pitch his program for property tax relief.

The governor's plan would freeze property taxes for two years in communities that cut costs and consolidate services to save money.

Cuomo said that communities that stay within the state-mandated 2 percent property tax will receive breaks.  

If passed, local homeowners could get back $350.

Orange County Executive Steve Neuhaus says local communities are already working on ways to consolidate services.

"I'm a 100 percent supporter of the tax cap," he says.  "I know it's difficult for local leaders to say, but it is the right thing to do. We need to reverse this trend in New York state."
