The definition of “transportation” from merriam-webster.com:
“An act, process, or instance of transporting or being transported; means of conveyance or travel one place to another.”
No where in this or any other definition of transportation have I ever seen the term “transportation” limited to cars only, except…..by some GOP morons in Congress who want funding in the transportation bill limited to highways and are proposing a bullshit piece of legislation called HR 7, The American Energy and Infrastructure Jobs Act. The title sounds nice, but it is deceptive. The legislation might have well been written by Big Oil.
Help stop these road warriors from runnimg amok and shifting our nation into reverse. This legislation is not progress, it’s regress!
Please contact your senators and your representative and let them know that you think people matter too. Funding should be restored and/or increased for transportation projects designed to accommodate pedestrians, cyclists, safe routes to school, and mass transit.
p.s. What kind of sorry souls would be opposed to funding something like safe routes to school?
