URGENT! Support Amendment to Allow RTP to Receive Additional Transportation Appropriation Funds

Recommended Posts



Senate Appropriations Package Includes Measure to Allow Recreational Trails Program to be eligible for additional funding.
Urge your Senator to support Senator Amy Klobuchar's (D-MN) amendment to the four-bill spending package (H.R. 6147), under consideration on the Senate floor this week. The package combines four appropriations bills for federal programs in fiscal 2019: Agriculture, Transportation and Urban Development, Financial Services, and Interior-Environment.
Senator Klobuchar is a strong champion of the Recreational Trails Program (RTP), and has filed an amendment to the spending package that would allow the RTP, as well as all Transportation Alternatives programs, to be eligible for additional funding.  RTP projects, which have always been eligible for use of other state surface transportation funds, are specifically denied eligibility for funds added under the 2018 appropriations omnibus signed into law in March, 2018. This amendment is designed to remove that unfair restriction.
The Senate is voting on H.R. 6147, and it is imperative that ARRA members express support to their Senators for the Klobuchar amendment today.
Take Action! Send a letter encouraging your representative to support H.R. 6147.
