The executive director said the state has become too reliant on local taxes to help fund state obligations. 

"If Albany wants to mandate a program, or create a new law, or provide a new service, if it's worth mandating, then it's worth paying for," said Stephen Acquario, executive director.

Last month, the association brought their concerns to the state.  

When they testified before the legislative fiscal committees, they also discussed the problem with eliminating revenue sharing with counties.
