The Debate Moves Forward a Bit

According to the New York Sun, Democrat Sheldon Silver has come around to be more amenable to some form of congestion pricing plan. (He must have read my earlier post!). March 31 is the deadline for city council approval on a plan, and I don’t think we in Queens need to worry too much that we’re going to be the biggest losers in the process.

The final deal will likely put a bigger burden on New Jersey drivers while adding some fee for drivers who currently pay nothing to enter Manhattan. The city council is the biggest obstacle, because 30 of the 51 members hail from Brooklyn and Queens. They understand clearly how the initial “congestion pricing” plan targets their constituents.

Sounds like something we can live with.
