From the League of American Bicyclists:
Congress is currently putting together anÃ‚Â economic stimulus packageÃ‚Â to have ready when the new Congress returns in early January. While public details of the forthcoming stimulus bill is not available, we are hearing that there is a chance that funds for transportation and infrastructure projects in the stimulus package may go overwhelmingly to road projects-the same unbalanced strategy that has created our existing transportation problems.Ã‚Â
We must speak up now to make sure that the economic stimulus language maintains the established transportation funding allocations including the Transportation Enhancement set aside which is the primary source for bicycle and pedestrian projects.Ã‚Â
