Bike-ped bucks on the chopping block

Chopping blockThe House Transportation Committee is slated to vote Feb. 2 on the American Energy and Infrastructure Jobs Act, a bill that the League of American Bicyclists says would eliminate crucial funding for cycling and pedestrian programs.

On the chopping block are Transportation Enhancements and Safe Routes to School.

“Without these programs,” says the LAB, “communities all over the country will lose resources to build the sidewalks, crosswalks, and bikeways that make biking and walking safe and accessible in your community.”
