A judge's ruling that the MTA payroll tax is unconstitutional - originating from a 2010 lawsuit brought by numerous Long Island villages, including Locust Valley - is being celebrated by critics of the law, but the agency is vowing to appeal the decision in the face of a resulting $1.5 billion deficit.
County Executive Edward Mangano called the ruling a "great victory" at a press conference Thursday, and said, “It also sends a message to agencies like the MTA to become more efficient before looking to the taxpayer."
