So the legislature has rubber stamped the 25% increase, Why? There was no audit taken, no justification from the ferry co.! Just the owners desire to make more money on the backs of the people forced to use the ferry service! I wish I could go to my boss and ask for a raise because I asked for it, without any justification! These back room deals will be the death of the ferry services!

Read the story again.
The Davis Park Ferry Co. won unanimous approval from the Legislature's Public Works and Transportation Committee for the increase after nearly six months of discussion. The full Legislature will consider the bill at its next meeting, on Tuesday in Riverhead.
'... after nearly six months of discussions.'
Sounds like you're confusing the Davis Park Ferry with the Fire Island Ferry.

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion.
The increase wasn't just handed to them as you suggested in your original post which is what I was responding to.
