New York State Senators Anna M.

The funding will allow Nassau County, as well as Nassau's towns and villages, to fund more road repaving projects throughout the county, improving driving conditions and safety for motorists and pedestrians. The funding represents a 31% increase over funding in last year's State Budget, and is the first increase in CHIPS (Consolidated Local Street and Highway Improvement Program) funding in 8 years.
