Updated 9/16: One amendment was withdrawn and the other one defeated. Good.

Disturbing news today about an imminent threat to funding for trails, walking and bicycling.

We’ll spend billions to prop up the auto industry, but these people want to cut funding for trails and healthy activities like walking and bicycling.

Tell your senator to vote no on Wednesday on Amendments 2370 and 2371 to the FY10 Transportation, Housing and Urban Development appropriations bill.

Don’t wait. Make the call.
