Nassau officials drafting legislation to repeal speed cameras
The Nassau County Legislature's presiding officer is drafting legislation to repeal the county's controversial school speed zone camera program.
A formal announcement on the legislation is expected Tuesday from Presiding Officer Norma Gonsalves and the Legislature's Republican caucus.
News of the planned legislation to repeal the program came shortly after Suffolk County announced it would not implement its own cameras next year as planned.
Residents and some Democratic lawmakers have criticized Nassau's camera program, arguing that it was hastily implemented and seemed to be more of a cash-grab than a safety measure. Last week, Nassau County announced it would cut the hours its cameras were in operation.
