Why NYC's Congestion Tax Plan is Facing Bipartisan Opposition

On Wednesday, Republican congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis and Democratic congressmen Josh Gottheimer announced the formation of the Bipartisan Congressional Anti-Congestion Tax Caucus, aimed at killing the plan to toll motorists who drive south of 60th Street in Manhattan. They argue that the congestion tax will have a negative impact on the environment, the economy, and the communities in the outer boroughs and suburbs.
