Congestion Pricing

Sadik-Khan Press Conference Coverage

3:52 PM EDT on April 27, 2007

New York 1 covers the Mayor's announcement of New York City's new transportation commissioner, Janette Sadik-Khan.

"No matter what you call it, environmentalism, sustainability or agreener New York, we all want a healthier city for our families andkids and it is that shared desire, it's a necessity really, that bringsus together," said Sadik-Khan.

During the press conference, the mayor also spoke on his much-debatedplan for congestion pricing. Bloomberg says the public will get behindthe program once they understand its benefits.

"When you say that that there are a lot of people objecting, numberone, I don't see it and number two, if they are it is only because youare not explaining the great benefits that most of them will not payanything and get the value of all the revenues generated," he said.
