Malliotakis calls for further delay to congestion pricing, calls it ‘the latest cash-grab of the MTA’


Congress Member Nicole Malliotakis, the city’s sole congressional Republican, wants the MTA to slow down even further the timetable to implement congestion pricing, and is pressing the Biden administration to force the transit authority to undertake a far more onerous environmental review in order to halt the plan by another several years.

Malliotakis made the announcement with bipartisan flair, bringing with her a congestion pricing foe from the Democratic side of the aisle, Congress Member Josh Gottheimer of New Jersey. Both argued that the plan would be far too burdensome on their constituents who, for various reasons, have no other choice but to drive their private automobiles into Manhattan.
