New Jersey Congressman Criticize Congestion Pricing

A pair of New Jersey lawmakers are upset with congestion pricing, saying some drivers in the state will pay twice.

Under the plan put forward by officials in New York, drivers traveling south of 60th Street would pay a congestion pricing fee. That means drivers who cross the George Washington Bridge and then drive into the congestion zone would be charged for two tolls.

Congressman Josh Gottheimer said he’ll introduce legislation that would cut off some of New York’s federal funding unless that’s changed. Congressman Bill Pascrell said New Jersey should also get some of the revenue generated by congestion pricing.

Congestion pricing is set to go into effect in 2021.
