      This morning Active Transportation Alliance held a press conference to
      announce
      that the advocacy group and its partners are introducing
      legislation in Springfield
      that would raise the state gas tax and index
      it to inflation. Under this initiative,
      called Transit Fast Forward, the
      tax hike would apply only in the six-county Chicago region,
      and the
      extra revenue would be used solely to increase funding to the CTA, Metra
      and Pace:

      Keep moving forward,
