Newsday – February 12, 2018

A federal judge has stopped Oyster Bay from enforcing a law that forces contractors on large projects to meet new apprenticeship program requirements.
U.S. District Judge Denis R. Hurley in Central Islip issued a preliminary injunction against the town on Feb. 7 that it cannot enforce an amendment to a law adopted by the town board on Sept. 12 on any contract in which the town is not a direct or indirect party.
