NY Mayor De Blasio Denies City Already Has the Power to Toll Bridges

New York Post reports that New York Mayor Bill de Blasio quickly dismissed the Move NY campaign’s argument (presented during at a June 5 city council hearing) that the city now has authority under state law to implement its own congestion mitigation plan, bridge tolling included. The mayor told reporters at a news conference, “The only way congestion pricing can even be considered is through Albany. That’s what has been determined by the Law Department long ago, and that’s not going to happen at this point in time.”
