Mangano Set To Sign Bill Into Law

The final 2009 meeting of the Nassau County Legislature was highlighted with the expected repeal vote of the home energy tax.

That repeal was not met with a veto by outgoing County Executive Thomas R. Suozzi. Instead, Suozzi, last week, said he would leave the executive decision to incoming County Executive Edward I. Mangano. According to published reports, Suozzi said he would have supported an energy tax repeal if it were economically feasible.

The repeal vote took place at the Monday, Dec. 21 meeting. Earlier, the repeal was approved in committee by a 10-9 vote. On the final vote, all eight Republicans in the legislature voted for the repeal. Five Democrats joined them: David Denenberg (D-Merrick), Jeff Toback (D-Oceanside), David Mejias (D-Farmingdale), Joe Scannell (D-Baldwin), and Wayne Wink (D-Roslyn).
