Successful RACC Initiatives
While the governor and Assembly Democrats constantly claim legislative victories, the fact is that many of the ideas that have enhanced the quality of life for all New Yorkers originated with the Assembly Republicans, including:
An historic 2-percent property-tax cap
The lowest middle-class tax rate in nearly 60 years
The School Tax Relief Program (STAR)
Corporate Franchise Tax Cut
Megan's Law, requiring the registration of sex offenders
Jenna's Law, eliminating parole for violent felony offenders
A restoration of $90 million to the Office of People with Developmental Disabilities and their non-profit caregivers
For over three years, Assembly Republicans have led the push to enact real women's equality. From pay equity to strengthening orders of protection and ending human trafficking and pregnancy discrimination, the Assembly Republican Conference is proud to make equality a reality for all New Yorkers.
Stop Common Core
The Assembly Republican Conference has taken the lead on the movement to repeal and replace Common Core. We've hosted a series of statewide forums featuring the testimony of educators, administrators, parents and students. Out of that we've developed the APPLE Plan, a comprehensive strategy to get our education system on track.
