More businesses will leave, more jobs will be lost, and the elites will be the only ones who can afford to drive into NYC. Yet another policy designed to pick the pocket while further marginalizing the Middle Class and the poor.
The Department of Transportation has given the green light to New York’s controversial congestion pricing plan, which would impose a toll on drivers who attempt to enter Manhattan during peak traffic hours.On Friday, the Federal Highway Administration gave tentative approval to the Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s environmental and legal submissions for the proposal, allowing it to move forward with a 30-day public review period. The administration is expected to give its final approval to the congestion pricing plan at the end of that review period, Politico reported. Under the plan, drivers entering Manhattan could be forced to pay as much as $23 on top of other tolls and fees. The fees are opposed by North Jersey Democrats, who say the New York plan is unfair and essentially a tax on Jersey drivers.New Jersey Democrats slam Biden administration approval of congestion pricing plan for New York | Fox News
