Mass action for mass transit

Representative Earl Blumenauer is sponsoring a bill called the Transportation and Housing Choices for Gas Price Relief Act.

“There is no magic silver bullet that will solve the energy crisis, but there are things we can do now to reduce the impact of high gas prices on American families,” said Rep. Blumenauer. “One thing we must do is give people more transportation choices, and my bill does this by offering incentives for commuters to carpool, ride public transit, bicycle, or telecommute. By diminishing the impact of gas prices on family budgets, these common sense ideas can make an immediate difference in the lives of over-stretched Americans.”

Though not up for a vote yet, you can contact your Representatives in Congress so they can co-sponsor this bill.
