Urge JFC to Expand Transportation Funding
Committee Votes Tomorrow – Advocate Now to Improve Transportation!
The Joint Finance Committee (JFC) is voting on a budget provision tomorrow, April 30, that could expand transportation grant funding to support programs for people with disabilities and the elderly.
If the Committee votes to create the new Transportation Alternatives Program, grants could be provided for transportation projects to achieve compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act and for projects and systems that provide safe routes for non-drivers, including people with disabilities and the elderly, to access daily needs.
Funding levels for the new grant program will also be decided tomorrow.
If this issue is important to you, contact members of JFC immediately and tell them to support Alternative A 2 of the Legislative Fiscal Bureau Paper #647 to expand transportation grant programs and to fully fund the program.
Thank you for advocating to improve transportation for people with disabilities in Wisconsin!
