On January 1, 2018, a new Suffolk County law will go into effect, charging a five-cent fee for plastic and paper carryout bags, at a variety of retail stores. Those in support of the fee believe it will protect the environment. Those against view it as a tax that will hurt local businesses.

Here is a suggestion which would improve quality of life in Nassau County:

Raise the benefits for all sanitation workers. They work harder then any one in Nassau. They breath more toxic air in one day then the men at 911 did in six months. Look how much money those guys made.

Take down all the red light cameras in Nassau, and take all the surcharges off all tickets. How many times do you have to pay for the same ticket.

They are a disruptive public nuisance. Pass legislation for unsolicited robocalls to receive a dollar a call fine and they will soon cease to exist.
