Mayor Bill de Blasio is again calling for the implementation of a “mansion tax:” a surcharge on the sale of high-end residences in the city. The Mayor made this one of the featured proposals in his state of the city speech as well as in recent testimony to the state Legislature.
In order to ensure the City’s physical and fiscal well-being against future weather events and mounting risk
posed by climate change, this report suggests that the City make investments to protect property from the future effects of climate change.
