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"The MTA payroll tax must be repealed entirely, not made permanent.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.

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.
