Support the Cardin-Cochran Transportation Amendment!

The reauthorization of the federal transportation law presents an opportunity to promote, enforce, and expand health, safety, and equity in transportation policy. Unfortunately, as written, the Senate’s transportation bill removes dedicated funding for walking and bicycling and allows state departments of transportation to opt out of spending any money on safe street programs. Fortunately, Senators Cardin and Cochran will offer an amendment that would improve the bill by ensuring that local governments can apply directly for funds to build safe and healthy walking and bicycling infrastructure.

Please take the time to send a message to your Senators urging them to vote “Yes” on the Cardin-Cochran amendment.
