The state legislature is set to continue talks on rent control laws that apply to roughly 1 million New York City apartments on Tuesday following a temporary extension of the 1946 law Monday night. The new deadline is midnight Tuesday.

Senate Republicans want to pass an extension of the current provisions wants. The Democrat-led Assembly wants to strengthen protections for tenants.

The issue has been linked to a property tax cap and gay marriage legislation as the end of the session nears.

Abolish rent control, continue all apartments under rent control law as rent stabilised. Property tax cap is a must.
