Those in support of the fee believe it will protect the environment. Those against view it as a tax that will hurt local businesses.

Regardless of you political leanings or affiliations, Nassau County has lost a man who fought for LI for many years. Regardless of a political party, I fully respect each of the legislators for they are passionate in what they beleive in and are willing to fight for what they believe is right.
