Today is off to a great start! With meetings scheduled with Sen Boxer & Rep Capps’ offices, we’re excited to share the benefits that biking & walking will provide for our future!
In between these meetings we’ve been dropping in to chat with other elected officials, on behalf of those who couldn’t make it out to DC to join us. Our message is concise and extremely relevant, as the federal transportation bill is on the top of everyone’s mind.
House leadership proposed a 3 month extension this morning and it has been the buzz on Capitol Hill in the hallways. This timing allows the conversation to run parallel to what’s being discussed in the House of Representatives today.
Have we mentioned how much everyone loves the bike pins we’re all wearing?!
Here we are before our meeting with Capps’ office with our fellow advocates and neighbors from Santa Barbara:
Stay tuned for some better photos later today when we have time to upload them from a computer!
