Today's the day to call or write to your representatives. We have repeatedly fought to retain bike/ped funding. This is NOT a frivolous expense. Maintaining bike/ped funding will SAVE us money. It will save money for the government, because bike/ped infrastructure improves roads for all users (motorists too). It will save money for individuals, who want to bike because gas is expensive. It will save lives and health, and costs associated with health.

Yet bike/ped funding has been attacked over and over this year.

Lawmakers are in last minute negotiations TODAY to reconcile the Senate and the House versions of the transportation bill. Today is the day to contact our representatives and tell them bike/ped funding is important. However--none of the Missouri representatives are on the subcommittee. Please check this list and ask your friends and family who live in these states to contact their representatives.
