This all sounds pretty good, except for one thing, in the Senate, Oklahoma Republican Tom Coburn is planning to file an amendment to cut Transportation Enhancements from the six-month extension any moment now.
So, if you haven't done so already, please contact your Senator and ask him to support Transportation Enhancements and to not support Senator Coburn's amendment to the extension of the Transportation Bill. Trails, bike lanes, racks on buses and safer intersections may not be important in Oklahoma, but we love them here in the Delaware Valley. Our Regional Trail Network has terrific momentum and Senator Coburn's amendment would pull the rug out from under it if it successfully yanks Transportation Enhancements. Remember, we're not asking for more money; just to preserve the funding that is already authorized and appropriated. BTW, yanking TE from this extension will do NOTHING for the deficit.
