On Monday, March 2, 2009, at the Austin Cycling Association (ACA) meeting, ACA President Stanton Truxillo and the ACA Board presented a ceremonial check for $5000 to BikeTexas Executive Director Robin Stallings, to be used for bike advocacy in the current 2009 Texas legislative session.
ACA had sent the actual check in late 2008, and those dollars are very much at work as you read this. BikeTexas staff and ACA volunteers have been at the Capitol many times to nudge the 2009 Safe Passing Bill and other bike-related items through the labyrinth that is our legislative process.
For many years, ACA has been an extremely active club with weekly cycling outreach events to adults and children. They have been a BikeTexas member club for many years and BikeTexas is honored that ACA has chosen to commit this solid support to our collective legislative efforts. Thanks, ACA, for your great support.
