CONGE$TION- PLAN ROADBLOCK IN D.C.
"I write to express my concerns about the assurances by [U.S. Transportation] Secretary Mary Peters . . . that New York City will receive a significant amount of federal funding for implementation of Mayor Bloomberg's proposed congestion-pricing program," [Rep. Peter]DeFasio wrote in the letter obtained by The Post.
"You should know that Congress has not authorized the [Transportation Department's] Congestion Initiative or its component parts," DeFasio added.
DeFasio told Spitzer he had "serious doubts that New York City or Mayor Bloomberg's congestion-pricing program" would be eligible for federal funding under several DOT projects from which the funds had been expected to come.
