A New York state appeals court has validated the New York City taxi commission's move to require drivers to purchase the Nissan NV200, reversing an earlier, lower-court ruling.

Justice David B. Saxe said the initial requirement was "consistent with the broad interests and perspectives" of the Taxi and Limousine Commission, reports the New York Times.

The so-called "Taxi of Tomorrow" plan had been a cornerstone of former Mayor Michael Bloomberg's transportation agenda until it was blocked in October by a Manhattan judge. The city's Mayor Bill de Blasio has been a longtime critic of the NV200 because it's not a hybrid or wheelchair-accessible from the factory.

    Are there no real Americans left in this country? Why do we keep supporting foreign nations by taking business away from our U.S. manufacturers when our economy has been decimated by the people that Attacked Pearl Harbor and killed 400,000 american boys. It is apparent that we must reward those people by giving away all our jobs. Please dont tell me that they created jobs in our country, because all those profits go back to their homeland. Wakeup America.
