Federal Transportation Funding Deadline Looms: Act Today!

Federal transportation funding for programs important to the disability community is about to run out on May 31, 2015. Discussion has occurred, but no consensus exists on addressing the issue. Impacted areas include, but are not limited to, mass and para-transit, high speed passenger rail systems (includes Amtrak and regional passenger rail systems), and curb cuts. As much as half of all transportation funds received by states are Federal dollars, so substantial cuts would occur without a timely solution. Please contact your members of Congress to support increased funding today. Use the links below to locate your members of Congress and express your concerns.
