The Rockland County Legislature has voted to pass the 2012 budget plan.
The vote occurred just after midnight and passed with a 12-4 vote.
The revised 2012 spending plan is expected to save hundreds of jobs, keep the Summit Park Nursing Home open, as well as restore most of the money for law enforcement.
Rockland County lawmakers also overrode the state-imposed 2 percent property tax cap. Instead, Rockland's portion of people's property taxes is expected to go up by 30 percent.
Experts say the increase will result in an extra $150 for the average household.
