Campaign For New York’s Future: Event to Thanks Legislators for Action on Congestion Pricing and to Urge Action on Remaining Issues

Leading representatives from the New York Central Labor Council, the Tri-State Transportation Campaign, Environmental Defense, Nos Quedamos and Transportation Alternatives will join with other leaders from the Campaign for New York's Future to thank New York's elected leaders for moving New York's congestion pricing plan forward while also urging quick action on key remaining steps required to secure $500 million in federal funds, during a press conference, 1:00 pm, Sunday, July 22, on the steps of City Hall, Manhattan.

Leaders will urge the State Legislature to return as quickly as possible to Albany to officially pass legislation in order to strengthen New York's application for $500 million in federal funding to support immediate mass transit improvements and finance the technology for a pilot congestion pricing program. The leaders will also express the need for cooperation and pledge their support in cleaning New York's air, unclogging the traffic that chokes New York's streets, and raising the funds to maintain and expand the transit network.

The Campaign for New York's Future is an unprecedented coalition of more than 140 environmental, public health, civic, labor, community and business organizations that have joined in support of PlaNYC.
