Governor Andrew Cuomo and Mayor Bill de Blasio are once again fighting over how to pay for repairs to the subway system.
The estimated cost is $37 billion over a decade and Governor Cuomo says that should be split between the state and city. A spokesperson for Mayor de Blasio said the city has already paid enough.
“After failing miserably to secure a sustainable revenue source, we knew the governor would be back for more. The mayor has contributed a record amount bailing out Gov. Cuomo’s subway mismanagement,” spokesperson Eric Phillips said.
Cuomo has proposed a congestion pricing plan to help fund the repairs. De Blasio is pushing for a millionaire’s tax.
