No NYC congestion pricing

Adam Doster

New York City's congestion pricing plan bit the dust today in committee: NYT has the details: “The word ‘elitist’ came up a number of times,” said Assemblyman Mark S. Weprin, a Queens Democrat, who said his constituents overwhelmingly opposed the measure. “The members who oppose it did so because their constituents opposed it,” Mr. Weprin said. He estimated that opinion among Assembly Democrats ran four to one against the plan. UPDATE: Nice eulogy by Charles Komanoff at Grist.
