Pheffer Amato Successfully Defends “Rockaway Rebate”

Assemblywoman Stacey Pheffer Amato (D-Rockaway) today thanked Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie, Governor Andrew Cuomo and the Leadership of both houses “for their leadership in continuing, for another year, the ‘Rockaway Rebate,’” which reimburses Rockaway Peninsula and Broad Channel residents for trips across the Cross Bay Bridge to and from mainland Queens.

“This rebate program is crucial for our residents, a no-brainer for our economy and the very least New York State can do to deal with the unfairness of the only same-borough toll in NYC. Meanwhile, residents of Southern Queens often need to pay a two-way toll to work, go shopping or meet friends or family mere minutes from their house,” said Pheffer Amato.
