Good Morning!

• South Fork County Legislator Jay Schneiderman is looking to regulate gas stations that charge as much as a dollar more for credit card transactions than they do for cash, a practice that is becoming more common on the East End. He’s asking the legislature to support a bill that will require the gas stations to issue a prompt to consumers at the pump letting them know of the surcharge and asking them to accept it before they pump their gas.

• The Hampton Jitney is holding a “Design a Jitney” contest in honor of their 40th Anniversary. Anyone can enter a design that celebrates motorcoach transport between the East End and the city. Their design will be converted into a bus wrap. The contest ends April 30. More information is online here.
