Staten Island Republican Rep. Nicole Malliotakis has joined forces with New Jersey Democratic Rep. Josh Gottheimer in a renewed effort against congestion pricing.

Malliotakis, whose previous attempts to stop congestion pricing were unsuccessful, and Gottheimer are now aiming to amend a broader piece of federal legislation dealing with toll road and express lane programs nationwide.

During an appearance on “Mornings On 1” Thursday, Malliotakis said she was looking for “any legislative and legal option” to stop congestion pricing from taking effect, noting that a Siena College poll released Monday also found the majority of New York City residents oppose the tolling plan.

"It's very unfortunate that these elected officials who represent New York are not listening to the will of the people who can't afford to live in the city," Malliotakis said, criticizing the imposition of what she called "another cash grab tax."

The congestion pricing tolling plan is set to begin mid-June and will charge a $15 base fare for cars entering Manhattan south of 60th Street. Tolls collected will be allocated to the MTA and is expected to generate at least $1 billion for pay for projects. Supporters have said the plan will curb traffic jams and cut emissions in the borough.

However, the congresswoman believes that congestion pricing would ultimately push traffic to other areas of the city and worsen conditions in other areas.

“What this does is basically push everyone to the outer boroughs to the closest they can get without paying a toll and then they'll jump on mass transit, which would bottleneck those areas, she said.

Malliotakis said she would be fighting especially for Staten Island residents, who have limited public transit options for commuting to Manhattan and would be forced to incur increased costs to get to work.

"We shouldn't have to pay a $15 toll to enter another borough in the city in which we live,” she said.
