NYC Comptroller candidate David Weprin calls for two-year delay of congestion pricing

Candidate for city Comptroller, David Weprin, is continuing long-standing opposition to the state’s congestion pricing plan which would create a dedicated revenue stream for the MTA alongside other members of the state Assembly.

Weprin issued a statement on Thursday calling for the Cuomo administration to delay the plan for two years after the pandemic comes to an official end as a means of relieving a financial burden on a small percentage of motorists traveling into Manhattan.
