The return of the residency rebate for the Cross Bay Bridge is a victory for our community
Thanks to our efforts, a residency discount for the Cross Bay Bridge toll is included in the governor’s 2012 budget.
Collected over 2000 signatures in our petition
Urged the MTA president to get rid of this unfair tax for Rockaway and Broad Channel
Had our voice heard by the governor when he included a residency rebate in his budget
But our work isn’t done yet.
Assemblyman Goldfeder is fighting to:
Make sure the residency rebate passes in the final budget
Bring his bill to the floor for a vote to end the Cross Bay Bridge toll once and for all (A.9000)
“When I took office, I vowed to make the elimination of the Cross Bay Bridge toll a top priority. Our voices were heard by the governor and the residency rebate program is a great first step. But the work is not yet done. This toll has got to go. Period.”
