		Act Now

Senate has 2 weeks to restore transportation funding	 	
	
	The recently approved House budget decimated transportation programs
with deep cuts to New Starts, the program that funds nearly all new transit
construction across the country, as well as high-speed rail, Amtrak and a
new program (TIGER) that rewards innovative local projects that improve
congestion, clean the air or make streets safer and more walkable. Our
senators now have a chance to stop these damaging cuts from going through,
but they have less than two weeks to act and they need to hear from you.

Contact your senators today and remind them that millions of Americans rely
on these programs to get around and expect them to focus on retaining the
best job-producing programs in the budget. We're counting on them to step up
and prevent these damaging cuts to transportation.

Transportation 101

	
	
	
<http://action.smartgrowthamerica.org/salsa/track.jsp?v=2&c=xzjRoB0RtNdoR6VH
%2FxP6HQNWfTJW65PE> Have you ever walked into a movie 15 minutes late? It's
confusing, right?

Joining this debate over federal transportation policy is a lot like that.
It's hard to figure out how it works - much less how to go about changing
the current system. We know it's not always the easiest issue to follow and
a lot of people use complicated jargon and acronyms that can confuse even
the veterans.

So we put together "Transportation 101" - a free report - to provide some
clarity and help document where we've been, where the money comes from, how
the program works (or doesn't work) the process of reauthorization and the
new (and old) challenges facing us as Congress debates a new transportation
bill. Download it today.

 <http://t4america.org/images/t4newsletter/blank.gif> 		FAST FACT


57 percent of voters say "safer streets for our communities and children"
should be one of the top-two priorities if more money is invested in
infrastructure. The second-highest priority for voters overall is "more
transportation options" (32 percent.)
