"Congestion pricing is projected to yield $15 billion, the internet sales tax would yield roughly $5 billion, and the tax on cannabis could generate an additional $2 billion for a total of $22 billion for the next MTA capital plan. But even that leaves a shortfall to get to the low end of MTA's capital budget, which is projected at $40 billion. If we lose tax revenue generated by cannabis - then we will either need a 50/50 cash split between the City and State, or the pied-a-terre tax, which could raise as much as $9 billion, and we would still have a shortfall."
