Lavine Statement on Congestion Pricing Pause

Albany, New York – Assemblymember Charles Lavine (D-North Shore) has issued the following statement on Governor Hochul’s decision to pause congestion pricing:

“With the region not fully recovered from the pandemic and Long Islanders needing affordable access to Manhattan whether by car or train, Governor Hochul’s pausing of congestion pricing is the RIGHT move at the RIGHT time. I praise the governor for being flexible and for putting the needs of middle-class New Yorkers who are struggling ahead of any political considerations.”
