Executive orders cover tax exemption and COVID testing labs

New York Governor Kathy Hochul has signed an executive order that allows local governments to remove a personal extension requirement for property tax exemptions for low-income seniors and people with disabilities.

The governor says that with the winter rise in COVID cases, the health of these thousands of people in vulnerable populations can be protected while allowing local governments to override the personal requirement while continuing to provide tax breaks for those who need it most send.

The ordinance also allows the Senate and Assembly of State to meet remotely until January 15, and allows public entities to meet remotely. The content of the meetings has yet to be made publicly available.

Finally, the Executive Order allows certified clinical laboratories to use facilities outside of the state to conduct COVID-19 tests on New York residents to cope with the huge surge in testing demand.
