SENATOR GREG BALL ON TAPPAN ZEE BRIDGE TOLL: OVER $14 IS TOO HIGH

Senator Ball and Assemblyman Schimminger Partner on Bipartisan P3 Legislation

Albany, N.Y. – (10/01/2013) – On Friday, New York State learned the federal government’s loan for the Tappan Zee Bridge will be much less than originally anticipated. The federal government will only cover 33 percent of the cost and not the 49 percent that was requested a year ago. This shortfall means that the $14 toll predicted for the new bridge could actually be far higher. Senator Greg Ball (R,C,I – Patterson) and Assemblyman Robin Schimminger (D-C-I – Kenmore) have now announced a bipartisan and comprehensive public-private partnership bill that could be used to fund the bridge and other state infrastructure projects.
