Policy Alert – Transportation Funding

Earlier this week, Governor Corbett laid out in his budget address a proposal for raising $1.8 billion to close the current transportation budget gap.  This is a critical year for Pennsylvania to take the opportunity to find new funding to help repair our state’s bridges and roads and make them safer for biking and walking.

On February11th, an important transportation summit will be held in Harrisburg.  Legislators have been invited to hear more about how Pennsylvania could raise revenue to close the large gap in funding of transportation. From trails to railroads, mass transit to motorists, the summit will address how a broad-based approach to transportation can benefit all Pennsylvanians.

Pennsylvania Walks and Bikes, is asking you to encourage your state representative and senator to attend the summit to hear how biking and walking facilities are critical components of the Commonwealth’s transportation network.

Hearing from you will make a huge difference.  Please send your elected officials a quick email today!
