The Associated Press ALBANY The state will make it up to New Yorkers who have seen property taxes go up this fall due to the continuing budget dispute between the state Legislature and Gov. George the state Assem- bly's speaker said Tuesday. A survey of school districts across New York released Tues- day by the state School Boards Association showed 43 percent had to send out property tax bills that are higher than resi- dents agreed to in the May 15 school budget balloting around the- state. Districts blamed the hikes on the lower-than-antici- pated increase in state school aid contained in the so-called baseline budget approved by the Legislature in early August. Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver said it was clear the million increase in education aid for fiscal 2001-02 advocated by Pataki is not sufficient.
