Today, the House releases its transportation bill, the American Energy and Infrastructure Act. Please click here to contact your member of Congress.
Last week, we knew the bill would be bad news for biking and walking. But we didn’t think it would go so far as to completely cut every reference to bicycling and walking out of the federal transportation policy.
House leadership is pressing to eliminate bicycling and walking in the Transportation bill:
This is as urgent as it gets. Even if we do win this amendment, there will be a long road ahead. But if we lose here, we risk losing decades of progress.
We know we are asking a lot of you and we thank you for all you’re doing to preserve biking and walking.
