New York State Assemblyman Mr. Simcha Eichenstein voted last week against the New York State budget revenue bill due to its inclusion of congestion pricing. Congestion pricing puts another financial burden on hard working New Yorkers who are already having a hard time making ends meet.
“Our transit system needs alternative funding streams to succeed in the 21st century and beyond, but it cannot come on the backs of hardworking and struggling middle class families,” said Mr. Eichenstein.
Mr. Eichenstein took a moment off of the chamber floor during budget debate to record a video explaining his opposition to congestion pricing. The video can be found on Youtube
