The Metropolitan Transit Authority stands to lose about $1.5 billion in revenue per year after a New York State Supreme Court judge ruled on Wednesday, Aug. 22 that the MTA payroll tax is unconstitutional.

In addition to a five-year plan, Mangano laid out two other goals. The first is to “stop the debt from growing and then [to] reverse it.” The second, he added, was to “find a better, intelligent system to handle assessments,” including computer software.
