The House transportation bill, which determines what kind of transportation system we'll spend billions building and investing over the next 5 years, is nearing a vote,
But this version in the House would eliminate dedicated funding for public transportation, kill the tiny amount of funding that helps make dangerous streets and roads safer for children and others on foot or bike, and fail to do enough to fix our decaying bridges and roads or provide people more options for getting around. With the House planning to vote on this bill any day now, we need to send a message loud and clear that the House must scrap this bad bill and start over.

Hi, my name is [NAME] and I live in [PLACE]. I’m calling to ask Representative [NAME] to vote “NO” on HR 7, the American Energy and Infrastructure Jobs Act.
This bill would eliminate dedicated funding for public transportation and deprive my community of the tiny amount of funding that helps make our dangerous streets and roads safer for children and others on foot or bicycle. It does not do enough to fix our bridges and roads or provide people more options for getting around. It also does too little to put Americans back to work at this difficult time and create the jobs we desperately need.
We desperately do need an updated federal transportation bill, but this proposal advanced by the House is not it.
Thank you for your time.
