House of Representatives Declares War on Public Transit
Yesterday, a proposal was introduced by the House Ways and Means Committee that would strip dedicated federal funding for public transportation.
We have long said that public transit is a 21st-century civil rights issue. Tomorrow, this very issue will be debated in Congress — and their decision will affect millions of Americans who depend on public transportation to get to school, work, and the doctor’s office.
Your voices are essential right now to preserving this essential funding. Please contact your Member of Congress today and ask them to preserve funds for public transportation and reject the House Ways and Means Committee proposal.
Onward for equity.
