New Jersey Lawmakers Crafting Bill To Fight Congestion Pricing
New Jersey lawmakers are fighting back against New York City’s congestion pricing plan that’s being put together.
Assemblyman Chris Tully and other lawmakers are crafting a bill that will offer tax breaks for New York based businesses that open New Jersey offices so their New Jersey employees don’t have to go to New York. It’s a move to counter congestion pricing.
“This is a way that we can not only fight back and let New York know that this is something that New Jersey won’t stand for but additionally, we offered a plan that I believe is even more environmentally friendly than congestion pricing.”
It’s unclear yet if New Jersey drivers already paying to use the Hudson River crossings will get some kind of credit toward the congestion toll when entering Manhattan below 60th street.
