ALBANY — State representatives have submitted matching bills that, if approved, would require New York state to pay taxes on property it owns in the city of Ogdensburg.

Sen. Mark Walczyk, R-Watertown, and Assemblyman Scott A. Gray, R-Watertown, have sponsored matching bills — S04810 in the Senate and A05276 in the Assembly — that “allows for the taxation of state property located in the city of Ogdensburg.”
