Last week, state lawmakers brought back the good news that proposed school aid funding would be restored to Long Island districts. It is always a fight for Long Island to get its fair share of school aid and this year proved to be no exception. In fact, it is even worse considering the damage that was caused by Sandy to the area, and yet many Albany lawmakers still proposed taking away funds. Therefore, our local state representatives Assemblyman Tom McKevitt, Assemblyman Joseph Saladino, Senator Charles Fuschillo and Senator Kemp Hannon should be recognized for their efforts. Long Island still is not receiving a fair share, but thanks to the efforts our local lawmakers, at least the cuts are not devastating.
