Only 18 districts sought to override the property-tax cap. The New York State United Teachers union said the 99 percent approval rating surpassed a record 98.2 percent of budgets passed in 2014 and the 95.3 percent that won passage in 2013.

In remarks on the Senate floor, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said the trade legislation and two other bills — one to renew the Patriot Act, the other to keep federal highway funds flowing — would receive final votes by week's end or senators would have to delay a scheduled Memorial Day recess.
