Press Releases


Today, Congressman Jerrold Nadler (NY-12) issued the following statement after the Federal Highway Administration approved congestion pricing in Manhattan:

“Today’s approval by the FWHA is a victory for New Yorkers in our fight for cleaner air, safer streets, and improved mass transit. I have fought for congestion pricing from its inception because it is the best way to get cars off our overly crowded roads and allow us to reimagine our streets to create green space for parks, protected bike lanes, and dedicated bus lanes to make commute times faster and more efficient. I’m proud of my work to make New York the first in the nation to implement this approach which will deliver critically needed funding for the MTA. Now that this program has the green light from the federal government, I look forward to my continued partnership with the MTA, the Traffic Mobility Review Board, and community leaders to finally implement congestion pricing without delay.”
