Roughly every three days, one person biking or walking is killed by someone driving a car in the Chicago region.

Nadler Amendment Approved

Today, the House approved the Nadler Amendment to the federal economic stimulus bill on a voice vote. The Amendment restores $1.5 billion for the transit capital formula program and $1.5 billion for New Starts (new transit services).

For more information about the Nadler Amendment, see yesterday's blog posting.

The House also rejected a proposed amendment to strip funding for Amtrak.

These two votes are a big victory for the Chicago area.

The House is expected to approve the full stimulus bill later today.
