The property tax cap is a stupid idea and the state should not interfere in a clearly local matter. Property taxes go to support schools and, quite frankly, the towns with higher property taxes have better schools, better teachers, and better performing students. The "property tax cap" is nothing more than social engineering with the usual approach- the lowest common denominator. Lower taxes in towns like Pittsford, Fairport and Brighton and suddenly schools in low-tax districts like Gates, E.R., Henrietta and Greece don't look nearly as bad. I live in a high tax district BY CHOICE. If I don't want to pay these taxes that support the good schools in my town, I would "vote with my feet" by moving. No one is forced to live in a certain area and pay the corresponding tax- thus the whole proposal is nonsense.
