Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s $175 billion budget includes a provision that would add a felony charge for assaulting a transportation worker.

Cuomo touted the proposal on Thursday as he is also pushing for a congestion pricing plan for Manhattan, with the proceeds to be used for shoring up the New York City subway system.

“New York has zero tolerance for anyone who flagrantly puts the lives and safety of transportation workers in jeopardy,” Cuomo said.

“By strengthening existing penalties and expanding the categories of workers included in these protections, we will prevent future assaults, ensure the safety of New York’s transportation workers and provide law enforcement the tools they need to hold offenders accountable.”

Under Cuomo’s proposal, an assault on a transit worker would lead to a $5,000 fine and up to seven years in prison.

The measure would also include DOT and Thruway Authority workers as well as airport workers.

The measure is also included in a budget that would add new penalties for those who assault working journalists.
