Sign on to Support Cap and Trade revenues for Active Transportation!

The California Air Resources Board recently wrapped up its public hearings to gather input on the investment of cap-and-trade auction proceeds to support the State’s effort to reduce the greenhouse gases (GHG) that contribute to climate change.  Active transportation offers unique advantages to simultaneous reduce GHG emissions while improving public health, reducing congestion, improving livability and public safety.  Increasing investments in Safe Routes to School programs, bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure and first-last mile connections to public transit will support the goals of AB 32 and SB 375.  We encourage the administration to set aside a significant portion of the cap and trade revenues for these purposes.

Join us in providing comments to the administration on this important topic.  Please sign on by COB 3/7/2013.
