NY Governor Cuomo’s outrageous speed-camera cash grab for the NYC Subway

If he’s just looking to slap de Blasio around again, on general principle, he missed: As City Council Speaker Corey Johnson notes, this could undermine “the lifesaving speed-camera program,” which gets its funding from the ticket take.

This is far from the only way the gov’s budget proposals seek to dump on the city: Cuomo’s “congestion” proposal also takes all of the fees for the MTA, when past versions gave the city about a third of the cash to help maintain the roads and bridges that actually generate the revenue.
