Transporation funding: be ready to act

Both Adventure Cycling and LAB are sending out this warning about Transporation Enhancement funds being cut. Yes, budget cuts are coming at they may effect cycling. Most of the money used to build trails and bike facilities come from a small portion of Federal Transporation dollars required to be set off for just this purpose. I think it is only 3%.
Still if all the little pieces are put together we might get some big savings. Or you might argue that putting more people on bikes is fights obesity, pollution, and those associated costs. Whatever your opoinon, look for updates on this and be prepared to write or call your legislators with your opinion.–Corrie

Potential Attack on funding for bicycling could happen this week More Info
We are on “Amendment Watch”
Dear Friends:

Working with our partners at America Bikes, we have been monitoring and preparing for possible federal budget cuts that could attack biking and walking. This is a “pre-alert” to give you the heads up that if biking and walking funding and programs are attacked, we will have a very short window in which to take action.

If an amendment attacking biking and walking is proposed we will let you know right away and ask that you do your part as a citizen to raise your voice for biking and walking. If such action is required we will provide specific information and directions.

There is no action to take at this moment – this is just a heads up that we need everyone to stand-by for action.

Thank you in advance.
