The leader of the Democrat-controlled state Assembly said Tuesday their budget proposal will include a property tax "circuit breaker" instead of the rebate program sought by Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

Speaker Sheldon Silver made the comment to state Capitol reporters as negotiations between legislative leaders and Cuomo over the state budget due April 1 enter the final weeks. The Assembly and the state Senate each were expected to vote Wednesday on separate budget proposals staking out their positions on the fiscal plan.
