House to vote on key transportation bill on Thursday

League of American Bicyclists and American Bikes alerted their members last week to contact their representatives in the House and ask them to preserve funding in an upcoming transportation bill for bicyling and pedestrians.
“Next Thursday, the House Transportation Committee will vote (see timeline) on the American Energy and Infrastructure Jobs Act, a bill that eliminates crucial funds for biking and walking. Representatives on the Transportation Committee are key positions to save dedicated funding for biking and walking,” said an article on bikeleague.org.
