LI Herald: State Senator: Tell the MTA "Enough is Enough"

By Senator Charles J. Fuschillo, Jr.

July 30, 2010

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority is continuing its long tradition of asking Long Islanders to solve its fiscal problems. We need to tell the Board of Directors at the MTA "enough is enough."

Because of last year’s MTA bailout plan, which I opposed, LIRR riders will be asked pay up to 9.4 percent more for tickets and pay higher fees for onboard transactions. The MTA is also looking to significantly shorten the time span for which certain LIRR tickets remain valid.

STATEMENT FROM SENATE PRESIDENT MALCOLM A. SMITH RE: Cross Bay Bridge Resident Rebate Program

“The burden of the MTA’s budget deficit should not be placed on commuters already struggling in these hard economic times. The Rockaway Rebate Program benefits over 100,000 local residents. Rockaway residents should not have to foot-the-bill to travel on and off the Peninsula. I urge MTA Chief Executive Officer Jay Walder to immediately reinstate the program.”

Smart Growth Act could fix state's infrastructure

By: Peter B. Fleischer

New York's budget crisis is forcing government at all levels to re-evaluate how it allocates increasingly rare public dollars. As officials seek to identify and eliminate wasteful and unnecessary spending, they will find some of the waste is hiding in plain sight.

Travel to downtown Buffalo or to many of the state's older suburbs and you'll find decaying sidewalks, half-empty shopping centers, vacant lots and abandoned homes. Then travel a few more miles into what was until recently open countryside, and you'll find big new homes sprouting from former farm fields. Meanwhile, the population of many counties and the state continues to decline.
