It’s a flurry of activity on Capitol Hill as both houses of Congress tackle spending bills before the August recess. Senator Paul’s harmful cuts are slowly approaching a vote – and the House will be considering more harmful spending cuts.

These cost-effective programs provide communities across the country with the funding they need to build great biking and walking networks
– to build healthier, more connected neighborhoods and provide affordable and sustainable transportation options for millions of Americans.

Last week, RTC supporters flooded the Senate with more than 1,600 calls and emails to protect these programs. But we need to keep the pressure on to ensure that vital funding for biking, walking and trails programs remains intact.

Please write your Senators and Representative today to stop cuts to important biking, walking and trails programs.”

Please let your voice be heard today!
