‘Why people don’t trust politicians,’ Queens pols react to Hochul’s congestion pricing snafu 

Governor Kathy Hochul surprised everyone on Wednesday when she announced that congestion pricing would be paused indefinitely

“Circumstances have changed and we must respond to the facts on the ground — not from the rhetoric from five years ago. So, after careful consideration, I have come to the difficult decision that implementing the planned congestion pricing system risks too many unintended consequences for New Yorkers at this time,” said Hochul in a prerecorded video message.
