Albany Reform

Pricing Bill Appears in Albany; Bloomberg and Paterson Meet

5:31 PM EDT on March 19, 2008

From The Daily Politics:

While members of the City Council haven't seen it, a congestion pricing bill drafted by the Bloomberg administration has popped up in Albany over the last 24 hours, although it does not yet have a sponsor and hasn't been introduced.

Here is a PDF of the 41-page bill (caution: it's a large file). Liz Benjamin at TDP got a copy from Assemblyman Richard Brodsky, along with requisite commentary (he calls it "regressive" and "unfair").

As of 2:30 this afternoon, Benjamin said, the City Council had not seen the bill.

Also, the mayor and the governor had a meeting this afternoon, reports the Politicker, where they were "presumably talking about things like congestion pricing and the state budget."
