Alert: Save Biking and Walking

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, January 31, 2012

On Thursday, February 2, the House Transportation Committee will vote on the American Energy and Infrastructure Jobs Act, a bill that eliminates crucial funds for biking and walking. Please contact your U.S. Representative and ask him/her to support physical activity in your community. Visit America Bikes for an easy way to send a letter.

This long-awaited multi-year transportation bill would eliminate the two largest programs that fund biking and walking infrastructure—Transportation Enhancements and Safe Routes to School. Without these programs, communities all over the country will lose resources to build the sidewalks, crosswalks, and bikeways that make biking and walking safe and accessible in communities across the country.

Please help -- and ask friends, colleagues, and members to act too.
