Power & Politics: Congestion pricing, rising antisemitism and 10-month military promotion block ends
The MTA’s board approved the congestion pricing plan which will slap New Jersey drivers with a $15 fee to drive into the Central Business District below 60th Street.
Rep. Josh Gottheimer speaks on the decision that triggered a 60-day period for public comment, as well as other issues – including rising antisemitism since the beginning of the Israel-Hamas war and the response from college campuses.
Also on the show is Rep. Mikie Sherrill, a former Navy pilot, who didn’t hold back after Sen. Tommy Tuberville stood down on his protest of the Pentagon’s policy on abortion that halted the promotion of military personnel for 10 months.
Finally, former Senate President Steve Sweeney is getting ready to announce he's running for governor, the New Jersey Globe reports. Sweeney would have to take on Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop, setting up a battle between north and south.
