SENATOR MARTINS STATEMENT ON MTA’S ATTEMPT TO MAKE MTA PAYROLL TAX PERMANENT AS PART OF PROPOSED CAPITAL PLAN

"The MTA payroll tax must be repealed entirely, not made permanent. I am disappointed in the MTA's including it as a funding mechanism for their capital plan and will continue to oppose this tax that has robbed businesses and taxpayers on Long Island of hundreds of millions of dollars and countless jobs. The MTA needs to go back to the drawing board and stop treating Long Island like its own ATM."

SENATOR MARTINS: BILL GIVING ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS TAXPAYER FUNDED PUBLIC ASSISTANCE BENEFITS & THE RIGHT TO VOTE AN INSULT TO OVERTAXED NASSAU FAMILIES

     “I strongly oppose the Senate Democrats' proposal to give illegal immigrants New York State citizenship including taxpayer funded public assistance benefits and the right to vote, serve on juries, run for public office, obtain a driver’s license, and hold professional licenses. It is an insult to hardworking, overtaxed families in Nassau County and New York State, but it's in addition to Senate Democrats' plan to provide illegal immigrants with taxpayer funded college tuition assistance, even though 3 out of 4 current New York students do not qualify for that same benefit.
