DeMint Amendment Defeated

From the League of American Bicyclists:

Great news that the DeMint amendment to prohibit stimulus funds going to bike and ped projects was unsuccessful - thank you to all of you who called your Senators!

This also served as a good warm up for the big ask. We will be getting the public alert for you to help spread later today. We do ask that you all help get the word out as soon as the bill passes the Senate (expected to happen Tuesday...but it is the Senate and politics). Again, be looking for our alert language later today.
