The League is currently working on a full analysis of the House version of the transportation reauthorization bill, the INVEST in America Act, released last Friday. Our statement on the INVEST in America Act is below.
The League of American Bicyclists was instrumental in pushing Congress to pave the first roads in America, and as key stakeholders in our infrastructure since 1880, the League is pleased to see the INVEST in America Act make transformative investments in the future of our transportation system. The INVEST in America Act refocuses our infrastructure goals to center the movement of people rather than simply the movement of cars. Further, League applauds the resources devoted to addressing safe streets for everyone in the INVEST in America Act. The decades-long rise in traffic violence has cut short the lives of far too many people biking and walking, and this bill makes strides to ensure everyone can make it home safely.
