Your Senators need to hear from you!!

The House has already passed its version of the transportation bill, which includes funding for the Recreational Trails Program (RTP); now it’s the Senate’s turn.

But the Senate has provided less funding ($325 million for six years) for RTP than the House ($503 million for six years). So ARRA encourages you to write to your Senators and let them know they need to match the funding level in the House bill--$503 million.

Your voice can make a difference, so write NOW!!

Good news, writing your senator worked! Also from what I understand Virginia had the largest number of people writting in.

I got this off the ARRA Website:

Miracles do happen in Washington, even in July! After months of writing about it, we are pleased to report to you that the Congress has finally passed the highway authorization bill. This means the Recreational Trails Program has been reauthorized for five more years with a 64% increase in funding, total authorized funding of $370,000,000.

This is a major accomplishment! Many recreation groups have worked very hard to shepherd this program through a very lengthy reauthorization process. The fact that RTP was not only reauthorized but also received a significant increase in authorized funding is very good news. ARRA members have consistently been in touch with their Senators and Representatives urging support for RTP, and this hard work has finally paid off. Congratulations to all who have supported this important program.
