Rep. Josh Gottheimer announced new bipartisan legislation in an attempt to put an end to New York’s congestion pricing plan.
Gottheimer on Wednesday visited the MTA headquarters demanding financial documents to justify the new cross-state tax.
The Democratic congressman, who has been a vocal opponent of congestion pricing, says New Jersey residents aren’t the only ones who will be affected. He says this is why he is teaming with Rep. Nicole Malliotakis, of Staten Island.
"Our legislation will block the implementation of the Congestion Tax this June and protect commuters, families, and businesses. If the MTA is going to keep taking federal dollars, we're going to make sure they're accountable to the federal government, all taxpayers and all families around the country,” Gottheimer said.
Congestion pricing is expected to go into effect June 15 for commutes entering Manhattan below 61st Street. Drivers will be charged an additional $15.
