Federal Transportation Funding Update: House Punts, Senate May Start Voting Tomorrow

We received an update from the League of American Bicyclists this afternoon that things are in flux in Washington D.C. with respect to the Transportation Appropriations bills that are moving through the House and Senate.

The House pulled their bill and will take it up again in September. The Senate may take up voting on amendments tomorrow. We will keep you updated if any amendments to pull funding out of Transportation Alternatives (aka biking and walking projects) get offered. In the meantime, if you haven't e-mailed your Senators to ask them to support bicycling and walking, please do so now.
