Group Asks Governor To Put More $ Toward Bicycling, Walking and Transit

Transportation for Washington wants you to ask Governor Gregoire for a fair share for walking, Bicycling and transit. The group, which specializes in transportation advocacy, claims the federal transportation bill that was just passed, MAP-21, sends transportation funding back to the 1950s.

So they're collecting petitions asking Governor Gregoire to fairly allocate federal transportation dollars to walking, biking, and transit and plan to deliver the petitions to the Governor in mid-August.

You can check out the petition here and see if it's something you're interested in signing.
