From the League of American Bicyclists:
Press Release: Â Earlier this year Representatives Blumenauer (D-OR), Capuano (D-MA), Carnahan (D-MO), Cohen (D-TN), Filner (D-CA), Lipinski (D-IL), and Moran (D-VA), introduced the Active Community Transportation Act (H.R. 4722) which would provide long term concentrated funding to assist communities in implementing active transportation networks.
Currently there are 62 co-sponsors of the Bill and Congressman Blumenauer is starting a second push to add additional co-sponsors by the end of the August Congressional District Work period.
Please contact your Representative over the next few weeks to urge them to sign on to this important piece of legislation that will help communities across the country provide healthy transportation options that also help reduce our dependency on foreign oil.
