Subject: WE WIN on Enhancements!
September 4, 2003
Yahoo! Moments ago, the House of Representatives voted to restore funding
for the Transportation Enhancements program in the 2004 Transportation
Appropriations bill with over a hundred Republicans voting yes! The
bi-partisan effort was led by Representatives Petri (R-WI) and Olver
Huge thanks to everyone who wrote letters, made calls and let Congress
know that the Enhancements program was important. Your voice was heard!
This victory not only restores $600 million in dedicated funding for
it puts the bicycle and pedestrian community on strong footing for the
bigger battle over the reauthorization of TEA-21, the 6 year
transportation funding bill.
More later. Nice work, y'all!
I am THRILLED!
