Statement by Walter McCaffrey, spokesman for Keep NYC Congestion Tax Free

Today's rejection of congestion pricing by Albany should not diminish Mayor Bloomberg's visionary plan for New York's future. He continues to lead the way on a more sustainable city. The State Assembly should be applauded for hearing their constituents concerns about the burden of a new tax with no guarantees loud and clear and putting the brakes on once and for all. It is now time to consider real traffic mitigation alternatives that all New Yorkers can agree with!
