Nassau County's First Empire Zone Created
After years of urging the New York State Legislature to approve an Empire Zone in Nassau County, the legislature, with the support of County Executive Thomas R. Suozzi, local businesses, government leaders and community advocates recently secured an Empire Zone. This step will establish "tax-free" business sites to help spark new private sector investment, job creation and economic expansion for under served and, in many cases, minority communities. The legislation was signed into law by Governor George Pataki.
