US Senate Update

Two days ago, we issued a call to action forwarded from the Rail-toTrails Conservancy to contact your US Senators to vote against amendments to a transportation bill that would have threatened funding for local bicycle and pedestrian projects. We are happy to report that the amendments were defeated by a Senate vote of 59-39, including two NAY votes by our own Senator Sherrod Brown and Senator George Voinovich of Ohio.

You can read more details about the issue at this page on the RTC web site. You can also follow the link on that page to send notes of thanks to our senators for their support.
