February 17th Congressional Hearing on Transportation set for King of Prussia

The House Transportation and Infrastructure (T&I) Committee is coming King of Prussia, PA on Thursday, February 17th to hold a "listening session" as part of a nationwide series of field hearings and public forums on "pending major surface transportation legislation."

When: Thursday, February 17th at 7:15 pm – 9:00 pm
Where: Radisson Hotel Valley Forge

Congressman Pat Meehan (R, PA-7) is hosting this session.  We learned that the format is that invited speakers will give short remarks to the attending Members of Congress.  The list of speakers has not yet been released, nor who from Congress besides Congressman Meehan will be attending.  An audience of 200 can attend the session to listen, but not speak.  

We've been told that a RSVP will be required, although there is not a link available yet.  We will post it as soon as we get it.

This is an opportunity to demonstrate to Congressman Meehan and other elected officials that there is broad support for federal transportation policies that promotes bicycling, walking and livable communities.  Such programs are at risk of being cut by the House.   Please come to this hearing to help demonstrate your support for dedicated funding and programs that support bicycling and walking.  As soon as the RSVP is made available, please sign up.
