State Bike Funding Saved
14 Mar 2005
You Did It! State Bike Funding Saved
You Did It! State Bike Funding Saved

When the federal government announced a "rescission" (a requirement that the state government return funds that the federal government had already given them), MassBike and the cycling advocacy community wanted to ensure that bike funding did not take a disproportionate cut.

Thanks to grassroots advocacy, the administration took note and 100% of Transportation Enhancements dollars (a key source of bike funding) were preserved, and Recreational Trails funds were also saved.
