HEMPSTEAD - There are new questions surfacing about the plan to build a new Nassau Coliseum.
According to the independent Office of Legislative Budget Review, only about 74 percent of the project's $800 million price tag would be covered after revenue from New York Islanders ticket sales to parking fees are generated.
A spokesperson for County Executive Ed Mangano (R-Nassau) says the budget review office is looking at the minimum amount of money that will be generated and the county's analysis shows Nassau will rake in more than $400 million in profit from the plan and create thousands of jobs.
