Phil Ramos:
Fighting to make life on Long Island more affordable

Phil Ramos is working to make life less taxing

Phil Ramos has heard the concerns of his constituents – high gas prices, rising property taxes and the high cost of living on Long Island. That’s why Ramos pushed for a state budget that delivered relief for working families.

Ramos fought for a budget that:

checkmark Preserved the Middle Class STAR rebate program


Rejected increased taxes and fees – like the gas-tax increase and the proposed $15 car tax – that would have nickel-and-dimed working families


Created the new prescription drug discount card for individuals 50 to 64 years old

Ramos understands there’s more work to be done. That’s why he’s fighting to:

  • Create the Long Island Workforce Housing program to provide affordable housing for middle-class families (A.9881-A, awaiting governor’s signature)

  • Expand the Empire State Child Tax Credit to include all children under 17

  • Tie property taxes to income so residents are not overburdened
