If you are a constituent of House Minority Whip Eric Cantor, please contact his office today, and urge him to stop proposing the elimination of Transportation Enhancements, Safe Routes to School, and other key sources of bike-ped funding.
Tell Rep. Cantor how important biking and walking are to you personally — how badly your community needs crosswalks, sidewalks, and bike facilities; and how important these are to improve safety, provide affordable alternatives to driving, reduce congestion and road maintenance costs, improve air quality, reduce dependence on foreign oil, and grow local economies.
Your action on this matter is of national importance.

As suggested by this Fox News article about Eric Cantor, we believe his posture on federal bike-ped funding is just part of an ongoing battle against the Obama administration; and that it is against the interest of his own constituents. Ultimately, it is these constituents that Cantor must answer to. So if you are one of them, please speak up now.
