Budget that guts transit funding moving in Congress this week
The House of Representatives will start voting on their budget for the rest of 2011 this week. And right now, high-speed rail, new public transportation construction, and an innovative program (TIGER) that helps reduce emissions and provide more transportation options are all due to receive large cuts or be eliminated completely.
We need your help to make sure Congress knows that their constituents rely on these transportation programs and don’t want to see them cut. Americans want Congress to come together to invest in transportation to fix our system, give us safe streets and more transportation options — and this proposal is a big step in the opposite direction.
