Although we continue to talk to the Legislature and the governor, it’s sad to note that after three months of working with all parties to address their questions, the failure of the state Assembly to act in time on a deadline imposed by the federal government is a terrible setback for clean air and to our critical commitment to fight climate change,” Bloomberg said in a statement.

“I can’t ascribe motives to the lack of action in Albany, but I can definitively say the environment and the future quality of life in New York took a beating.”

The plan (originally reported HERE on YW) included an $8.00 toll to discourage cars from coming into Manhattan to reduce traffic.
