New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio unveiled his own plan to ease congestion as he took a swipe at Governor Andrew Cuomo’s proposal to charge motorists a fee to enter Manhattan.

De Blasio, a Democrat who faces re-election in November, said he hasn’t seen an acceptable congestion-pricing plan since Cuomo put together a state task force a month ago to study the issue.
