District Office Visits May Be Needed as U.S. Transportation Bill Goes to Conference

Action-Alert-Photo

You did it! Thank you for calling and emailing your U.S. Representatives in response to the Action Alert last week. The anti-bike and anti-active-transportation amendments were defeated, and the House transportation bill passed on Thursday. 

We're not done yet! Now, the transportation bills from the House and the Senate go to conference where the two chambers work out the differences between the bills. The Senate bill is stronger than the House bill at this point for people who walk or ride bikes. Keep an eye out for more action on these bills over the next couple of weeks. 

Three Texas Representatives are on the conference committee: Brian Babin (R-36, Woodville), Blake Farenthold (R-27, Corpus Christi), and Eddie Bernice Johnson (D-30, Dallas). Do you live or work in one of these districts? We may need constituents to make district office visits. Let us know if you can stop by your representative's office this week.

Not sure who your representative is? Find out here.

Thank you for making Texas-- and the nation!-- a great place to ride a bike.
