“Poll: Taxes, ethics trump gay marriage, rent in Albany” The Siena College survey released this morning shows 37 percent rank passage of Cuomo’s agreed-upon two percent cap on local property tax hikes as lawmakers’ top concern, compared to 14 percent each for same-sex marriage and a renewal of current rent regulations.
