The second bill is focused on human infrastructure like child care and free community college, reducing climate emissions and building resiliency into our infrastructure.

Action Alert: Better Biking Through Reconciliation

Tell Congress to include provisions that promote environmental justice and safe bicycling in the reconciliation bill.

As Congress continues to formulate its reconciliation bill, which will include massive investments in infrastructure, the League of American Bicyclists is advocating for the inclusion of provisions that promote environmental justice and encourage bicycling. The reconciliation bill is a real opportunity to center climate equity and ensure bicycling is a safe, easy, and accessible option for all Americans, regardless of zip code. 

What's Happening With Infrastructure Investment?

While the IIJA contains numerous improvements that will increase safety, accessibility, and convenience for bicyclists and pedestrians, it is also missing key provisions supported by the League of American Bicyclists.
