An Advocates Work Is Never Done!

The League of American Bicyclists website is reporting that two Republican members of Congress have have written to President Obama suggesting removal of all funding targeted toward bicycle projects and programs. The cycling projects are a few of the many cuts proposed, which also includes eliminating the Office of the US Treasurer. You may read the full letter to President Obama from Representatives John Boehner (R-OH) and Eric Cantor (R-VA) by clicking HERE! 

While there are likely some feasible and realistic cuts suggested in the letter (Funding for purchase of brand name products?), cutting the funds for alternative non-motorized transportation and the Safe Routes to Schools program seems, to me, a short sighted view of the world to come.

Until later,
