The City Council has approved the mayor’s plan to charge congestion tolls below 60th Street in Manhattan. The Council approved the plan to charge most drivers an $8 fee by a vote of 30 to 20. While Gov. David Paterson and state Senate majority leader Joseph Bruno support the plan, Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver says he won’t take a position until the state passes a budget. If the Legislature doesn’t approve the plan by April 7, about $350 million in federal aid could be lost.
