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.
