The Cardin/Cochran Amendment to the Transportation Reauthorization Bill provides funding to local communities for safe bicycle and pedestrian routes. The amendment to MAP-21 (S. 1813) restores funding for all alternative transportation under the Transportation Enhancement (TE) Program through a competitive grant process.
The House/Senate Conference Committee is now finalizing the transportation reauthorization bill. Some legislators want to dismantle the Cardin/Cochran agreement and completely eliminate the TE program. Tell your legislators to support the Cardin/Cochran Amendment and save funding for local trails.
