Please contact your Federal representatives in regard to keeping the Recreational Trails Program (RTP) in tact

Alert from Coalition for Recreational Trails: We have learned that Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) is planning to offer an amendment – Senate Amendment 1742 — to the Transportation Appropriations bill (Senate Bill 1243) to transfer all funding from the Transportation Alternatives Program to pay for bridge repairs instead. The Transportation Alternatives Program includes all the funding for the Recreational Trails Program, in addition to funding for what used to be known as Transportation Enhancements as well as Safe Routes to School.Action on the amendment could happen in the very near future.

Please ask your members and grass-roots networks to contact their Senators and ask them to vote NO on Senate Amendment 1742 to Senate Bill 1243. Information on contacting Senators can be found at
