The federal government has agreed to allot $354 million to New York City to help it launch its congestion pricing plan. Yeah, that one where state legislators were first like “Hmmm, I dunno,” and then they were all like “no way,” and then some enviros were like, “Eh, maybe it’s not that great anyway.”

Not that federal funding guarantees that the state will approve the plan, so stay tuned.

Grist thanks its sponsors. Become one.
