All Road and Off-Road Cyclists:
We asked you to contact your representatives and ask them to support biking and walking and spread the word.
You Did It!
Thanks to your support the Senate and the House voted for a clean extension of the 2009 Transportation Bill, keeping our current Bike/Ped funding intact.
Last week, the U.S. Senate followed the House of Representatives’ lead and passed a 90-day extension to our nation’s multi-year surface transportation bill, SAFETEA-LU*. This action marks the bill’s ninth extension since its expiration at the end of September 2009.
The Senate’s passage of H.R. 4281, the Surface Transportation Extension Act, buys Congress time to agree on a longer-term transportation bill, or to pass another extension.
BikeTexas, working with partners at all levels from around the country, will continue to advocate for a bill that advances trails, walking and bicycling as vital parts of a more balanced transportation system. Your tireless advocacy has helped defend core active transportation programs thus far; thank you so much. We will be sure to keep you informed and involved in the coming months.
Thank you for taking action!
We will continue to fight to keep this vital investment program for smart, sustainable, safe transportation choices.
Thank you for your support!
