News, views and commentary on Long Island, state and national politics.
Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo made a splash in January 2012 when he announced a cap on executive salaries at nonprofit organizations that provide services to the state.
Two years later, a Supreme Court judge in Nassau County threw out Cuomo’s salary-cap regulations. Judge Thomas Feinman agreed with claims by Nassau-based Agencies for Children’s Therapy Services Inc. that the administration overstepped its authority.
Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, who represented Cuomo, has said he will appeal. The Civil Service Employees Association, New York’s largest public-employee union, said Feinman’s ruling “defies common sense.”
Cuomo proposed a school superintendents’ salary cap in 2011 that was later dropped.
