Advocacy Alert: $2.5B Funding Rescission Looms

Your state DOT may be getting ready to take away millions of dollars in bicycle and pedestrian funding.
In the latest budget deal between the Republicans and Democrats, the two parties agreed to rescind (read: take back) $2.5 billion in unspent federal transportation funds. Your state DOT has the power to decide which funds they send back. And based upon history we know what happens next.

Your state DOT may try to empty out the funds that pay for your sidewalks, bike lanes, trails, and education programs.

You can learn more and fill out a form that will send a message to Governor Brewer via the LAB’s Time To Take Action page.
