At the 2006 National Bike Summit, participants spoke to their Members of Congress about critical legislative issues concerning bicyclists across the nation, including the High Priority Projects Program, the Bicycle Commuter Act, funding the Conserve by Bicycling Program, and the Rivers, Trails and Conservation Assistance Program, as well as a variety of local issues in their districts. Summit participants also encouraged their Representatives and Senators to become members of the Congressional and Senate Bike Caucus. To read the League’s Issue Papers, click on the following links:
