NORTH JERSEY — Today, November 29, 2023, U.S. Congressman Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5) released the following statement:

“As advertised, New York is officially sticking it to Jersey families with their commuter-crushing Congestion Tax. On top of the existing tolls, it’ll be 15 bucks every day to go into the city with no discounts at the GW Bridge — thousands of dollars a year just to drive to work. If it wasn’t costly enough, the Congestion Tax will also increase toxic, cancer-causing pollution in Jersey.”
