Pre-Alert: Possible federal budget cuts in bike/ped this week
Working with our partners at Alliance for Biking and Walking and America Bikes, we have been monitoring and preparing for possible federal budget cuts that attack programs which fund biking and walking infrastructure. This is a “pre-alert” to give you the heads up that if biking and walking funding and programs are attacked, we will have a very short window in which to take action.
If an amendment attacking biking and walking is proposed, we will let you know right away and ask that you contact your U.S. Representative, asking them to protect federal investments in biking and walking. If such action is needed, we will provide specific information and directions.
There is no action to take at this moment – this is just a heads-up that we need everyone to stand-by for action.
