Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie in a radio interview on Thursday predicted the coming negotiations over Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s proposal for congestion pricing and a restructuring of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority to be a challenge in the budget talks.

Cuomo included both measures in his $175 billion spending plan, which is expected to pass by the end of March.

Heastie has said he’s generally in favor of congestion pricing, but some lawmakers in his conference continue to have reservations.

“I’d say there are still some concerns from members in the city,” Heastie said in an interview on WCNY’s The Capitol Pressroom. “I think for them this is a big deal.”

Various proposals for congestion pricing — charge tolls for vehicle and truck traffic into parts of Manhattan — have stalled over the last decade and a half in Albany amid concerns from lawmakers primarily from boroughs outside of Manhattan.

Meanwhile, cuts in state aid to municipalities that do not overly rely on the money could also be a sticking point, Heastie said.

“I’ve heard the county execs and town supervisors that this is a problem,” he said.

He also indicate a top-line discussion was held on the AIM funding issue in a meeting with Cuomo and Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins.

“Without getting into specifics it was raised we want to have a discussion about it,” he said.
