Minimum Wage Progress

The Governor, Senate President Sweeney and Assembly Speaker Coughlin emerged from a meeting in December with indications that they moved closer to an agreement on a minimum wage increase, which would eventually phase-in to $15/hour. Legislation advancing this effort seems likely to advance in the first quarter of 2019, though details still need to be resolved. There are additional details in our the League’s December 7 Friday Roundup letter.

The League will continue to advocate on other significant issues in 2019, including the long-overdue need for legislative reform to the Fair Housing Act, adequate property tax relief funding, including the full restoration of the Energy Tax Receipts to municipalities and to provide adequate cap relief to municipalities and property taxpayers, including the restoration of the 2% cap on interest arbitration awards.
