On Wednesday, June 5, 2013, the Pennsylvania Senate passed SB1 with a vote of 45-5. SB 1 is a $2.5 billion transportation funding bill. The bill includes a new Multi-Modal Fund which includes $2 million annually in dedicated funding for bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure projects.
This is a big first step in addressing the short fall of transportation funding in Pennsylvania. The bill is now being considered by the House of Representatives. Please contact your representative and let them know you support comprehensive transportation funding for walking and biking.
