DeFranciso Says Raising Property Taxes For Early Childhood Ed

There's a lot of conversation about early childhood education in New York, and how to pay for it. 

State senator John DeFrancisco takes issue with those, including Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver, that say raising property taxes is the solution.  He says the idea that municipalities, like New York City, to raise their property taxes to pay for early childhood education is ridiculous. DeFrancisco says Upstate residents are already drowning in high property taxes.
