Senator Rand Paul (KY) has just introduced an amendment to strip all funding from the Transportation Alternatives Program!
The Transportation Alternatives Program is the largest source of funding for bike lanes, pedestrian safety projects and the Recreational Trails Program. Senator Paul's amendment would eliminate funding for these critical active transportation and safety programs that have already been slashed.
