Exclusive to Streetsblog, at least for the next few minutes, here is S. 6068, the New York State Senate's congestion pricing legislation, or, as it is also known:

AN ACT to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in relation to establishing a congestion pricing program in the city of New York; to amend the public authorities law, in relation to establishing a Sustainable Mobility and Regional Transportation ("SMART") financing authority; to amend the state finance law, in relation to the creation of the Sustainable Mobility and Regional Transportation ("SMART") fund; to amend the public authorities law and the tax law, in relation to the disposition of the city of New York's personal income tax; to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in relation to establishing residential parking systems in the city of New York; to amend the vehicle and traffic law and the public officers law, in relation to establishing in a city with a population of one million or more a bus rapid transit demonstration program to enforce bus lane restrictions by means of bus lane photo devices and providing for the repeal of such provisions upon expiration thereof; and to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in relation to treating violations of obstructing traffic in intersections as a parking violation... etc. etc. etc.

Meanwhile, the Daily Politics notes:

As recently as Monday I was talking to lawmakers in Albany who said they had not seen a whole bill from the Bloomberg administration, but rather pieces of a bill that had holes large enough to drive a delivery truck through.
