Tell Your Representative Don't put our transportation system in reverse! -- Read more. Take Action: Tell Your Representative "Don't put our transportation system in reverse!"

The House of Representatives is considering a transportation bill that would fund our nation's roads, bridges and transit systems in the coming years. Unfortunately, House leadership has hijacked the transportation bill and turned it into a wish list for Big Oil. Under their plan, the bill will cut funding for transportation choices such as biking and walking and pay for new roads by opening our public lands to oil drilling, even in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and off Florida's Gulf coast.

Tell your member of Congress to oppose the House transportation bill and take up the Senate version.

Congratulations to Michigan Sierra Club Director Anne Woiwode for her "Green Leader of the Year" award from the Detroit Free-Press. From the article:
Another honoree, Anne Woiwode, state chapter director of the Sierra Club, said that more people than ever see the links between big issues such as climate change and pollution and their personal lives.

"The environmental issues are often understood in more personal terms because people are concerned about the impact on their families, their communities," she said. The issues are "not just someplace else."
Congrats, Anne!
