Thank you for all of you who emailed or called -- it made a difference! -- and stay tuned in March 2012, when this extension expires and we'll need to make our "I Bike. I Vote" voices heard yet again.
Those folks who emailed Ohio's senators received the following response from Senator Sherrod Brown:
Thank you for sharing your support for transportation enhancements, such as biking and walking paths.Thus far, there has been no response from Senator Rob Portman.
Transportation enhancement programs — which provide funding for bicycle and pedestrian trails — bring aesthetic and environmental improvements to our surface transportation system and expand travel choices throughout the nation.
I agree that these projects are an important part of our nation’s infrastructure. As transportation legislation comes before the Senate for consideration, you can be sure I will support appropriate funding to meet the nation’s highway and transit infrastructure needs.
Thank you again for being in touch with me.
