Environmental Defense Fund: Added January 14, 2009
"Congress is busy drafting an economic stimulus bill. The bill will include tens of billions of dollars in transportation investments, and hundreds of billions in other spending... We need to create jobs now by building the smarter, more efficient transportation and infrastructure system America will need in the 21st century, not throw money at 'bridges to nowhere' projects that will set back our efforts to create long-term, environmentally sustainable growth. Please send an email to Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Majority Leader Harry Reid urging them to support a smart stimulus package." Send the email through EDF >>
"Please sign our petition to President-elect Obama and key congressional leaders, encouraging them to fund these important bicycle and pedestrian projects: I support explicit funding for trails, walking and biking in the upcoming economic recovery package. Funding active transportation is a cost-effective investment that creates jobs and leads to healthier people, stronger communities, decreased oil dependency, and reduced climate change emissions."

Transportation For America:
"On November 4, Americans spoke out in favor of following a new direction. Transportation for America has earned a seat at the table with President-elect Obama—but we can’t afford to let Congress drop the ball on real investment in our nation’s crumbling infrastructure. Smart transportation investments will strengthen our economy, create jobs, reduce our dependence on oil, and make it easier for Americans to find the money to meet their growing transportation needs."
