Federal Funding for Active Transportation Protected

Thanks to the efforts of Active Trans members and our national partners, federal funding for active transportation was protected today. Senator Coburn introduced a series of amendments that would have had the effect of stripping funding for many bicycle, pedestrian and transit projects from the FY 2010 budget. The amendments were defeated.

In related news, Active Trans is participating in a national lobby day next week to increase money for urban active transportation projects.
