NY Gov. Kathy Hochul Slammed for Halting Congested Pricing Program in NYC

HeadlineJun 07, 2024

Up until this week, Hochul had advocated for congested pricing as a way to raise money for public transit and to reduce car emissions in the city. Climate advocate Bill McKibben described Hochul’s abandonment of the program as one of the most aggressive anti-environmental actions ever undertaken by a Democratic governor.
