Thank you Californians!

While efforts on the Federal Transportation bill are not over and have currently a lot of challenges – we want to convey a huge and heartfelt thanks to everyone in California who helped contribute to a national groundswell in support of the Petri-Johnson amendment and an improved Transportation bill. Many of you contacted Congress and worked hard throughout the state to encourage fellow Safe Routes to School supporters into action.  I know my inbox and facebook reflected that!  Dozens and dozens of organizations signaled their commitment to living in and investing in walkable and bikeable communities. As a result, members of the Transportation Committee received tens of thousands of calls and emails urging them to vote yes for Safe Routes to School and Transportation Enhancements in less than two days.  Wow – how to go Californians!

A big sincere thanks for all your effortsFor more information on the federal transportation bill, please see the Safe Routes to School National Partnership statement here.
