New State Budget Proposal Includes Biking and Walkway Upgrades

New State Budget Proposal Includes Biking and Walkway Upgrades

Sacramento Attorneys

In a recent article published by the California Bicycle Coalition, plans for improved walkways, bikeways, and other public transit options seem to be in California’s future. In her article “Governor’s Transportation Vision Includes Boosts for Walking, Biking, & Transit,” Linda Khamoushian, a writer for calbike.org, explains how “The Active Transportation Program (ATP)–the state’s dedicated source of funding for walking, bicycling, and Safe Routes to School projects–is slated to receive an additional $100 million per year from Cap-and-Trade proceeds in the proposal, with at least half to be invested in projects in communities where they are most needed” (calbike.org, 2017). For those that ride their bikes often or enjoy a nice walk through the city, this is great news.
