WOODBURY - The Nassau Interim Finance Authority (NIFA) has voted to declare Nassau County in a state of fiscal emergency and freeze the wages of all county workers.

The state watchdog group reviewed County Executive Ed Mangano's (R-Nassau) revised 2011 budget plan, which calls for the layoff of more than 200 workers and across-the-board cuts to every county department.

Mangano says his proposal slashes $180 million from the budget, but NIFA says the budget is still not balanced.
