An overwhelming majority of Americans support federal funding for biking and walking. So should Congress.

Just two months ago, the U.S. Senate passed a transportation bill that included the Cardin-Cochran agreement. This bipartisan compromise ensures that local governments and school systems are able to access much-needed funds to make bicycling and walking safer and more accessible.

Funding for biking and walking has popular support - a recent Princeton survey found that 83 percent of Americans support federal investment in bike and walk facilities.

Will you please tell your Senators and Representative that Americans support funding for biking and walking? Click below to take action - it will take just a couple of minutes.

Right now, as members of the House and Senate "conference" together to create a final transportation bill, we must protect the Cardin-Cochran provision.

Cardin-Cochran ensures local access to a small portion of federal transportation funds for biking and walking. Local elected officials across the country are asking for continued federal funds to build safe and accessible cycling and walking facilities.

Please click on this link to take action for biking and walking.

Thanks as always for urging Congress to support investment in biking and walking.

P.S. If you’re interested in that public opinion survey, you can find it here: www.americabikes.org/2012survey

My note: That last link about the public survey is REALLY cool! ...Don
