Every year, the League supports a number of bills in Congress in our efforts to build a Bicycle Friendly America for Everyone. Sometimes, these bills are ones we hope to eventually see get rolled into and passed as part of the five-year Transportation Bill cycles. Other times, these are bills with urgent impact and implications for making our streets safer and easier to use for recreation and transportation.
