U.S. Rep. Tom Suozzi (D-Glen Cove) held a virtual news conference with various mayors, town supervisors and civic officials from Nassau, Suffolk and Queens to oppose Gov. Kathy Hochul’s plans that he claimed would eliminate single-family zoning laws in the state.

Suozzi, who is leaving his post to run against Hochul for the Democratic gubernatorial nomination, said Hochul’s plans, which she outlined in a book issued with her State of the State address, would end the current housing landscape.

“This proposal that’s being made would actually end single-family housing in New York state,” Suozzi told reporters on Thursday.
