Federal Stimulus Bill – Protect Public Transit

Congress is voting in the next day on the Nadler Amendment to the federal economic stimulus bill. It would add $3 billion to the transit funding in the bill. In Illinois, these funds would help eliminate all slow zones on the CTA rail lines, and help CTA and Pace purchase new green and bike-friendly buses. Please make a commitment to active transportation and support the Nadler Amendment.

Today, Active Trans sent a Open Letter to the Illinois Congressional Delegation urging support for the Nadler Amendment. A copy of the letter is attached.

Please call your Representatives and urge a vote yes for the Nadler Amendment.
