WOODBURY - A rally was held today to try and save nearly 1,000 jobs on Long Island.

Local lawmakers joined workers at Brookhaven National Lab this afternoon.

The group protested proposed cuts by Congress that could mean the loss of 930 jobs at the lab.

Rep. Tim Bishop (D-N.Y.) and other officials said losing the jobs would have a "ripple effect" that would hurt businesses across Long Island.
