Stop the House assault on walkable neighborhoods

Safe sidewalks and bikeable streets are both key parts of creating great, walkable neighborhoods, and towns across the country have used these tools to create places people want to live and visit.

Over the past month members of Congress have been negotiating details of the federal transportation bill. Now, members of the House of Representatives have proposed allowing states to opt out of a program that would let communities make it safer to walk to public transportation, revitalize a Main Street or create bike trails for families. This is slap in the face of city councils, mayors, and county leaders from across the country on both sides of the aisle who are creating the great neighborhoods so many Americans already know and love.

Tell your Senators and Representative to preserve the popular Cardin-Cochran provision to give local governments a large say over a small share of their state’s transportation dollars.
