The lost sales tax revenue from losing the Islanders isn't coming back. If Nassau was going to use speed zone cameras at least they could have been used to keep the Islanders from leaving!

Voter turnout in NYS was terrible this year at 33%. To encourage more people to participate how about a $100 NYS tax credit for voting?

Should legislation be introduced to correct lost fees and penalties for the growing # of out of state plates in NY? Take a look around next time you travel the roads; probably more evident in lower income neighborhoods.

Ok, if you're a snowbird, fine, then this topic doesn't apply. I'm concerned about the frequency I'm seeing non-NY plates on LI and what it means, and what should be done about it.

Legislators enacted an Upstate Manufacturing Tax Credit so why not one in Nassau? Our community has lost 30% of our manufacturing jobs since 2000 because of the high costs associated with running a business here. Let's give Nassau job creators the same tax breaks we pay for to help manufacturers in other parts of the state. AMH

With diminished funding available for public and private education all schools should rent out their rooftops to solar energy providers. This green energy source will help drive extra revenue towards education giving taxpayers relief and bring down the cost of Long Island's power generation by providing extra supply. Adam Haber
