      Are you looking for a way to express your environmental advocacy in
      fighting global warming, air pollution and traffic congestion at one fell
      swoop? Look no further! But it needs to, done TODAY.

      On Thursday, September 4th, the US House of Representatives will vote on
      the 2004 Transportation Appropriations bill Call your Representative on
      WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 3rd and ask them to support the amendment by Thomas
      Petri (pron "PEE-try") and John Olver to save the Enhancements program,
      by striking Section 114 of HR 2989, which contains language which
      eliminates funding for multi-use paths, bike lands, and safety education
      efforts. These money is allocated to states and local governments for
      non-motorized, non-polluting, zero greenhouse gas emitting alternatives
      to highway transportation. If anything, this type of funding should be
      greatly increased, not eliminated from the Transportation Budget!

      Congressman Tom Petri (R-WI) and Congressman John Olver (D-MA) will offer
      an amendment during debate on Thursday to restore the funding. See more
      info in the alert below or at the America Bikes web site:
