ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - New York’s state comptroller says Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s administration should release the “long overdue” plan to pay for the new Tappan Zee Bridge.

Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli says Monday that he hopes new leaders appointed to lead the Thruway Authority will be more responsive to requests for information on how the state intends to pay for the $3.9 billion span.

State officials haven’t provided any estimates for toll increases on the new bridge. The existing toll is $5.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo has said it’s premature to project the toll amount because it will depend on the total bridge cost and state subsidies.

This week Cuomo nominated his budget director Bob Megna to serve as executive director of the authority and tapped Onondaga County Executive Joanie Mahoney to chair the authority board.
