Please ask your senators to co-sponsor S.1098, the Transportation Alternatives Enhancement Act, introduced by Senators Ben Cardin (D-MD) and Roger Wicker (R-MS).
The Transportation Alternatives program represents almost 50% of all federal funding for bicycling and walking networks and trails in our communities. This bill will increase that funding, and make it easier for local governments to access it. Read more about the changes in our blog.
The Senate Environment and Public Works (EPW) Committee is working fast to have a full transportation bill ready by this fall. We need to show strong support for S.1098, the Transportation Alternatives Enhancement Act, NOW to keep our bike-forward proposals front and center in the debate over the future of our transportation system.
