MINEOLA - County Executive Ed Mangano (R-Nassau) submitted his revised budget tonight ahead of the 5 p.m. deadline set by the Nassau Interim Finance Authority (NIFA), a state watchdog group.

NIFA told Mangano he needed to come up with $176 million in cuts to balance the budget. Working until the final hour to get it done, Mangano told reporters this afternoon that it's been a struggle.

"It's very trying to meet their demands and to be sensitive to the operations of government," he said.

CSEA President Jerry Larrichiuta says his union turned over $40 million in givebacks over the past four years and says it's time to look somewhere else for the funds.

"We have to look at the other 50 percent of the budget, or we have to raise some revenue," he says.

Mangano is expected to unveil the revised budget to the public tomorrow.
