Harlem Valley Rail Trail
Act this week to support local trail projects such as the Harlem Valley Rail Trail. This week, Congress is having a critical debate about the future of trails, biking, and walking. You can shape the outcome.
Contact Representative Gibson (202.225.5614 or 518.610.8133) and ask him to vote against the transportation bill, H.R. 7. The proposed legislation eliminates funding for future trail projects, which could hinder the expansion of the Harlem Valley Rail Trail and the development of other county trail projects. The bill also cuts funding for the Transportation Enhancements and Safe Routes to School programs, rail and canal trails around the country, and state DOT bicycle pedestrian coordinators.
Contact Senators Schumer (518.431.4070) and Gillibrand (212.688.6262) and ask them to support the Cardin-Cochran and the Klobuchar amendments to MAP-21. These amendments restore dedicated funding for the Recreational Trails program and ensure local input to Transportation Enhancements and Safe Routes to School projects.
