Gottheimer Statement on Start of Congestion Tax Lawsuit Hearings

 

Hardworking families finally get day in court

 

NEW JERSEY — Today, April 3, 2024, U.S. Congressman Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5) released the following statement as hearings begin for the Congestion Tax lawsuits:

 

“For years, hardworking families, nurses, teachers, law enforcement, small businesses, and commuters from Jersey and New York have spoken in unison: Don’t raise our taxes, don’t pollute our children, and don’t whack us with the outrageous Congestion Tax.

 

Finally, these hardworking families and commuters are getting their day in court.

 

Today, the judge will hear what we’ve been saying for months. The mismanaged MTA’s Congestion Tax is nothing, but a shameless cash grab that will lead to more traffic, pollution, and financial heartache for Jersey and New York families.

 

I stand with the thousands upon thousands of people who are fighting this tax and the plaintiffs in their bid to stop this commuter-crushing, cancer-causing $15+/day Congestion Tax.”
