STATEMENT FROM MAYOR MICHAEL R. BLOOMBERG ON LEGISLATURE APPROVING CONGESTION PRICING LEGISLATION
"I commend the Senate and the Assembly for moving forward today and acting on the agreed-upon legislation to create a commission to review the implementation of a traffic reduction plan. I am confident that through our work with the commission, our proposal for congestion pricing will be implemented. As we move forward with discussions of the details of various components of our plan, it is important to note that today the Legislature has made a significant commitment to a greener, healthier and more livable New York."
