Statement by Governor Murphy on Governor Hochul’s Decision to Pause the Implementation of Congestion Pricing

06/5/2024

“I want to thank Governor Hochul for pausing the implementation of congestion pricing in Manhattan’s Central Business District.

“Although we have had a difference of opinion with our colleagues in New York on congestion pricing implementation, we have always had a shared vision for growing our regional economy, investing in infrastructure, protecting our environment, and creating good-paying jobs on both sides of the Hudson River. We fully embrace the notion that the success of Manhattan is inextricably linked to the prosperity of the entire Tri-State Area.

“Governor Hochul and Mayor Adams have been strong, collaborative governing partners and I look forward to continuing to work closely with them for the benefit of all of our residents.”

"I’d also like to thank Congressman Josh Gottheimer for his strong partnership and advocacy over the years on this issue."
