Help Save Bicycle/Pedestrian Funding TODAY!

 

Legislative Action Alert! Please help us maintain the Transportation Alternatives program which is the only dedicated federal funding for bicycle and pedestrian projects.  Just last year Congress cut this funding by 30%.  Senator Paul of Kentucky has introduced an amendment to the Transportation Appropriations bill to prohibit ANY MONEY from being used for Transportation Alternatives, and to redirect that money towards other projects. Taking that small amount of funding away would dangerously undermine efforts in our cities, towns and counties to provide safe and efficient transportation options for everyone.  

Please contact your Senators (enter your zip code on the next page) and ask them to save Transportation Alternatives by voting NO on amendment 1742.  The Senate hopes to finish this bill today or tomorrow so please act soon!

Please note: Senator Collins actions on the Paul amendment will be critical!  She is the ranking Republican on the Transportation, HUD Appropriations Committee and her vote will effect other Republicans.
