The article focuses on New York's Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) which will have to submit a new, five-year capital program proposal to the state. Assemblywoman Catherine Nolan sent a letter to Transportation Commissioner Joseph Boardman announcing that she was rejecting the $27.7 billion capital program that the MTA submitted to the state's Capital Program Review Board in September 2004. The plan contained a funding gap of between $12 billion and $16 billion. The MTA submitted a $27.7 billion capital plan for 2005 through 2009 to the Capital Program Review Board in September that proposed spending $17.2 billion on the existing public transportation network in the New York City metropolitan area.
