Mayor says he wants Staten Islanders ‘treated fairly’ in NYC congestion pricing plan but State Representative to the area continues push against double tolling

The new system would charge drivers for entering lower Manhattan, but Rep. Nicole Malliotakis has been pushing to ensure Staten Islanders don’t need to pay another fee after crossing the Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge.

“Congestion pricing is nothing more than another tax on drivers in the left’s war against cars,” Malliotakis (R-Staten Island/South Brooklyn) said in an emailed statement Tuesday.
