NY1 reported just moments ago that Congestion Pricing is dead. According to NY1, it was decided in a meeting this morning that the politically charged issue would not come up for a vote after failing to garner enough support. While the report seems rather definitive, I don't think it's over til it's over, and even then, I still fear somehow it will be passed, even after the deadline. If it is in fact dead, it will be a great shame that the mayor was so inflexible in his approach to this particular issue. The idea of less congestion and clean air in the city is laudable. However, there are so many ways that the city can achieve these goals without unfairly taxing local residents (while giving folks from NJ a free ride).
