Transportation Amendments Defeated!

OutdoorBlips: vote it up!
from the American Hiking Society

American Hiking Society and other trail organizations asked you to call your Senator and respectfully request that they vote NO on two amendments that would have threatened significant funding for trails and the hiking experience. Moments ago, the entire Senate voted against these amendments. More than 500 people took action on short notice, and thanks to your voice, these damaging amendments were roundly defeated!

Good news. Way to go for all of us.

Yes... it kills me that just because there have been several highly publicized stories of rather "fluffy" uses of the Enhancement money such senior Senators would try to eliminate all the good that it does. It's like America can't consider the idea that there are other ways to get around besides a car. Thanks! I got off on a little rant there.
