Pitching Congestion Pricing, Again and Again

If the Bloomberg administration fails to get city and state lawmakers to approve congestion pricing in time to qualify for more than $350 million in federal funding, it won’t be for lack of official outreach.

This morning, members of the Bronx Assembly delegation met with Michael Bloomberg at City Hall to discuss the issue and right now, officials from the administration are testifying in front of the City Council about it. And here, courtesy of Bloomberg spokesperson, is a list of meetings the administration has held with lawmakers in the past month:
