- Congestion Pricing, RIP [✜]
Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver, one of the three most powerful men in Albany, apparently supported congestion pricing. He just couldn't convince anyone else to go along with him.
[Silver said] he favored some kind of congestion proposal but that the mayor’s plan simply lacked enough support to pass. “Let me be clear: If I were making the decision alone, I might have made a different decision,” Mr. Silver said.
