Transportation budget cuts

VDOT has been asked to cut projects with unspent funds. In the past these cuts were done proportionally so that one type of project, such as bicycle or pedestrian projects, was not cut more than others. The current cuts (known as recissions) do not have the proportionality clause. As a result, unspent bike/ped project funds could be cut more than others. One way to demand that the cuts are proportional is to contact Governor McDonnell. The League of American Bicyclists have made it easy to do so, with a draft message you can send. Visit their advocacy corner, fill out your contact information, and send the letter.
