State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli in a report last week concurred with the Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s assessment that its capital plan is underfunded and would be even more so if the state and New York City don’t pass a congestion pricing bill.

Without approval of congestion pricing or an alternative funding source, the funding gap would grow to $13.8 billion.
