STATEMENT FROM GOVERNOR ELIOT SPITZER CALLING ON MTA TO AUTHORIZE THE RELEASE OF THE MULTI-YEAR CAPITAL PLAN

Today, I am calling on the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) to accelerate the submission of the new MTA Multi-Year Capital Plan and approve the release of the plan at the MTA Board meeting on February 27th. It is critically important that the MTA fully disclose the detailed plan to the public prior to the State Legislature and the City Council considering the Traffic Congestion Mitigation Commission's report.

Under the Traffic Congestion Mitigation Legislation, the Multi-Year Capital Plan, which runs from July 2008 to December 2013, is due to the Capital Program Review Board by March 31, 2008.
