Local Officials on Congestion Pricing

So Al Gore may be in favor of congestion pricing for Manhattan, but lots of local officials are still squarely on the fence.
Here is a quick look at some of them who have, and haven't, taken a position:
Eliot Spitzer
Studying the issue. 
 
Sheldon Silver
Leaning against. 
 
Bill Thompson
Has "concerns" about "its financial impact on small business" and the outer boroughs. 

 

Christine Quinn

Studying the issue.

 

Betsy Gotbaum

In favor with reservations, an aide said.

Bill Perkins, state Senator in Manhattan

Supports, with reservations. Says it can be done “without it being a tax on the middle class and the poor.”

Andrew Lanza, state Senator in Staten Island
