Congestion Pricing Deadline: Fax to Albany Today

Congestion Pricing – YOU can make it happen!

Please fax Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silverwithin the next 24 hours.

Help us show that New Yorkers strongly support congestion pricing to improve transportation and clean our air!

Time is running out on this legislative session in Albany. The next 24 hours are crucial for winning clean air, money for transit and street space for bikes, pedestrians and buses. Tell Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver not to waste another second.

Congestion pricing is the most controversial portion of PlaNYC, but it is also the best way to fund $30 billion in vital transportation improvements and give New Yorkers much-needed traffic relief. PlaNYC is supported by a diverse coalition of over 130 environmental, public health, labor, civic, business and community-based organizations and millions of New Yorkers. Speaker Christine C. Quinn, Borough President Scott Stringer, Assembly Member Dick Gottfried and State Senator Tom Duane are all in support of the PlaNYC.

The State legislature must take action before the end of this session (which closes on Thursday) or New York City will miss out on a large federal grant to implement congestion pricing .

We need to generate hundreds of faxes in the next 24 hours.
