State lawmakers could be called back to Albany for various pieces of unfinished business, and at least one Rockland Assemblyman has a bag packed and at the ready if called. Assemblyman John McGowan of the 97th district, covering Orangetown and portions of Ramapo, says legislative leaders are trying to come up with alternatives for the now on-hold congestion pricing plan…

McGowan says alternatives to get the money that’s been lost, now that the congestion pricing plan has been temporarily shelved, include an MTA payroll tax or adding a new tax to businesses in Manhattan.
