The Nassau County Civic Association wants stronger legislation that would require more transparency about budget issues, particularly pay raises.

Our proposed reform legislation, the Disclosure and Accountability Reform Law would make the following changes; require a minimum of thirty days notice of any legislation prior to its passage and the establishment of a public registry where all proposed legislation would be published on county Web site and made available at all public libraries thirty days prior to any public hearing,” the group says on its Web site.
