Congestion Pricing Process Moves Forward in Albany

This afternoon the New York State Assembly voted 122-16 and the Senate voted 39-16 in favor of the process that would establish a 17-member commission to develop traffic mitigation measures for New York City. The commission’s plan would be required to produce a 6.3% reduction in average vehicle miles traveled in New York City.

Mayor Bloomberg praised the legislature and said that he is “confident that through our work with the commission, our proposal for congestion pricing will be implemented.”

The devil’s in the details says East Side Manhattan Senator Liz Krueger
