Malliotakis is Voting Against Marty Golden’s Bill

Nicole Malliotakis


Nicole Malliotakis is voting against a bill that Senator Golden introduced to correct the spelling of the Verrazzano Bridge. It’s great that Golden wants to spell the man’s name correctly (with two z’s), but the cost of changing all of those signs is going to be high.




The MTA says it will cost $350,000 to change the signs.(Source)  Senator Golden’s bill doesn’t delay the signs from being changed; the bill actually states that the signs need to be changed within 180 days after the bill has been passed. Malliotakis claims that the MTA is already in $38B debt and doesn’t need more.




Golden’s office said the MTA may be changing the signs soon because there may be a change in the cost of the toll. But it looks like someone didn’t think this through (or write the bill well – the bill should not be asking for the signs to be replaced in 180 days, but rather when signs need to be changed due to a change in the toll). 


Malliotakis knows this bill will probably zip through the Assembly. See story
