Senator Fuschillo appears on 2 local TV shows to discuss his opposition to MTA payroll tax proposal


State Senator Charles J. Fuschillo, Jr. (8th Senate District) recently appeared as a guest on two local TV shows to discuss his opposition to the proposed MTA payroll tax.

On both shows, WLIW's "Crosson & Welles" and TV 10/55's "Focus", Senator Fuschillo explained how the proposed payroll tax will raise costs for local small businesses and non-profit agencies at a time when many are struggling to survive and layoffs are rampant on Long Island. Senator Fuschillo also discussed how the proposed payroll tax would impose a costly, multi-million dollar unfunded mandate on local school districts and municipalities, who would be forced to pass these added costs to local taxpayers.

"Crosson & Welles" airs on Sunday morning at 11:30 am on WLIW Channel 21.

"Focus" airs Sunday afternoons at 2:30 pm on WLNY Channel 10.
