PBA statement on congestion pricing delay

NYC PBA President Patrick Hendry said:

“The governor made the right call here. The congestion tax is not only a burden on police officers and other essential commuters – it’s bad for public safety. The NYPD is already severely understaffed and struggling to recruit and retain police officers, who can find better pay and benefits in almost any other police department. Forcing cops to dig deeper into their pockets just to report for duty will send even more of them running for the exits. A congestion tax would mean even fewer cops on the streets. New Yorkers can’t afford that.”
