The Senate version of a new two-year transportation authorization bill was released on Friday, and it does not preserve dedicated funding as had been promised. Worse yet, it adds more eligible activities and gives an opt-out option all together. The "opt-out" option is horrible for bicyclists in a state like Indiana where we often send back Transportation Enhancement money instead of using it on a long list of current projects and INDOT tends to prioritize bicycle & pedestrian funding very low on their priority list.
