Big news just in from Richard Olken, executive director of the Bikes Belong Coalition:

"Bikes Belong and all our partners in America Bikes and the bicycling community have just restored $600 MILLION for bicycling projects.

[Thursday] the House of Representatives voted to restore funding for the Transportation Enhancements program in the 2004 Transportation Appropriations bill with over a hundred Republicans voting yes! The bi-partisan effort was led by Representatives Petri (R-WI) and Olver (D-MA).

Huge thanks to everyone who wrote letters, made calls and let Congress know that the Enhancements program was important. Our voice was heard. This victory not only restores $600 million in dedicated funding for 2004, it puts the bicycle and pedestrian community on strong footing for the bigger battle over the reauthorization of TEA-21, the 6 year transportation funding bill."
That's GREAT news. We need the recognition and $JFR
