Long Island lobbyists storm the state capital

More than two dozen activists traveled to Albany Tuesday to present state lawmakers with a list of top concerns among Long Islanders.

This was the second trip the Long Island Lobby Coalition has made to the state capital to present its agenda. The activists' overwhelming message was that Long Island needs jobs, funding for major sewer projects and transportation improvements.

The group claims its agenda is budget neutral, requiring the shifting of funds rather than the raising of taxes.

The Long Island Lobby Coalition is comprised of representatives from 30 groups ranging from environmentalists to business leaders.
