Rhode Island just became the ninth state to automatically register and re-register residents when they obtain or renew a driver's license, unless they opt out. Their stated purpose is to create cleaner voter records and mitigate concerns of voter fraud. In the NYS legislature most Democrats want automatic voter registration to make voting as seamless and easy as possible. Those against, such as NYS Senate Republicans, feel the current system works just fine. Should NYS automatically register residents to vote when they obtain or renew a driver's license?

NIFA should insist on it as not much has changed in the transparency of the County contracting process since Skelos' conviction. It's still a mess.

Nearly the entire 3rd floor of the Hicksville High School is ESL. The staggering number of illegal alien children is bloating our school budget and driving our school taxes out of control. I'm retired on a fixed income and can't afford anymore increases. I pickup my grandchild from the school and she can even point them out. This free ride at our expense must stop NOW>

There are a number of businesses on Hempstead Turnpike just west of New Hyde Park Rd in Franklin Square that do not clear their sidewalks of ice and snow. These sidewalks are located on a busy street with many pedestrians and a NICE bus stop that is heavily used. When these sidewalks are snow covered, it creates a serious hazard. There should be someplace taxpayers can report this non compliance so the County can arrange for snow and ice removal and the business establishments that have failed in their responsibilities can be billed and fined.
