Assemblyman Rob Walker (R,C,I,WF - Hicksville) announced that Nassau County will be receiving $6.1 million in Consolidated Highway Improvement Program (CHIPS) funding of the $363 million provided to the state by the 2005 Transportation Bond Act and legislative additions.

"This CHIPS funding is extremely important to our county, towns and villages in order to maintain the quality of roads throughout the state," said Walker. "At a time when the legislature is approving red light cameras to reduce the number of accidents caused by drivers running red lights, we must also be sure that the infrastructure of Nassau County is of high enough quality to ensure the safety of the drivers who utilize all its roadways."

Below is the amount of funding each municipality will be receiving in CHIPS funding for fiscal year 2009-2010:
