Dear Long Islander,
After weeks of wet weather, Long Island can finally look forward to a weekend of warm weather fun - this is the first official Summer Weekend, after all! Luckily there are plenty of great ways to enjoy the beginning of summer this weekend as things begin to heat up on LI. Saturday and Sunday are supposed to be beautiful, sunny days in the 80s - cool enough to enjoy a picnic or outdoor fun, but warm enough for jumping in for a swim after a relaxing day on the beach, or poolside. Not sure how to enjoy the first weekend of summer? Be sure to check out our Events Calendar and Things to Do Section for the best entertainment on Long Island all summer long!

Hot Off the Presses
New Legislation Will Essencially Eliminate LIPA, Freeze Rates Through 2015
Gov. Cuomo Announces PSEG Takeover
Governor Cuomo and Senate Co-Majority Leaders Dean Skelos and Jeff Klein, along with Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver, agreed on legislation to completely renew the electric utility situation on Long Island. This new legislation essentially puts an end to LIPA and rates for the new utility will be frozen from 2013 - 2015.Klein is behind this change following LIPA’s slow response in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. "Long Island residents work too hard--and pay too much in their monthly utilities bills--to have anything less than a top flight utility provider.” The Senate Co-Majority Leader says. "I commend the Governor, his staff, and my legislative colleagues for developing a plan that will finally provide Long Island ratepayers with the service and oversight that they deserve."
