Gianaris Discusses MTA Funding Plan



“If we want a functioning transit system, we have to pay for it, and the simplest and fairest way is to ask those who are among the wealthiest of the wealthy to chip in a little more. This plan would provide the dedicated revenue stream necessary to properly fund the MTA,” said NYS Senator Michael Gianaris, who will be the Senate sponsor of the plan announced on Monday, and is the author of the ‘Better Trains, Better Cities’ plan to fund transit repairs and maintenance through a surcharge on millionaire earners. “If we want a functioning transit system, we have to pay for it, and the simplest and fairest way is to ask those who are among the wealthiest of the wealthy to chip in a little more.
