Curtis Tate North Jersey Record Published 5:43 AM EST Feb 5, 2019 New Jersey drivers already pay tolls to enter Manhattan via Hudson River crossings. What if they had to pay more on top of that? New York is poised to implement congestion pricing in Manhattan's core, from 60th Street south. Under the proposal, cars would be charged $11.52, one way, to enter the zone. The fee would raise hundreds of millions of dollars a year to fix the New York City subway, as well as reduce the number of vehicles on city streets and their emissions. "Using this system is a way to make the commute more efficient," said Thomas Prusa, an economics professor at Rutgers University. It's not clear, however, what impact that plan could have on New Jersey. "It still may be the right policy," Prusa said, "but optically, it looks terrible."

Deal us in, voters say Donald Trump now has a date, June 12, and a place, Singapore, for his North Korea nuclear arms summit.

Before dawn Thursday, Trump went to Joint Base Andrews to welcome home three U.S. detainees freed … [Read more...] about Trump’s got Americans’ hopes up on North Korea
Tara Francis Chan, provided by Published 8:41 pm, Saturday, May 5, 2018 The White House has denounced demands from China that 36 foreign airlines change references to Taiwan as "Orwellian nonsense." It was reported this week that China's aviation authority sent a letter to US and international airlines, including American Airlines and Qantas, pressuring them to remove all descriptions of Taiwan as a country.

Earlier this year, China censured Delta Air Lines for a similar description of Taiwan and ordered all foreign airlines to review their sites leading to a number of changes and apologies from air carriers. As first reported by Foreign Policy this week and confirmed by Business Insider, a number of airlines received a letter on April 25 from China's Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) demanding changes to Taiwan, Hong … [Read more...] about White House slams China’s ‘Orwellian’ demand that 36 foreign airlines change references to Taiwan
