|The future of funding for bicycling, walking and trails in America is in serious jeopardy.|
|Please Take Action Today |
As Congress ramps up efforts to pass a national transportation bill, some senators and representatives are pushing to eliminate the dedicated federal programs without which most of our nation's trail, walking and bicycling infrastructure would not exist. These programs currently receive less than two cents of every transportation dollar, yet have tremendous impacts on their communities.
Make no mistake: if we lose this battle, communities all around the country will find it extremely difficult, if not impossible, to build the bicycling infrastructure they need.
Your Senator is on the Environment and Public Works Committee (EPW) and has previously made it clear that they support bicycling, walking and trails. Now, as their constituent –you - must encourage them to take the next step as the Committee is currently drafting their version of the next transportation bill.
