WE NEED YOUR HELP DEFENDING PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION IN CENTRAL INDIANA!
We need your help to defeat Senate Bill 141, a bill that if enacted would seriously threaten public transportation funding in Central Indiana and halt progress on the Blue and Purple Rapid Transit Bus lines.
In late February, Senate Bill 141 was approved by the Senate 32 – 17 and has moved on to the House Roads and Transportation Committee. In partnership with Transit Drives Indy, we are pushing to keep the bill from advancing out of committee. As such, I am writing today to ask you to join us in contacting Speaker Todd Huston, Committee Chair Jim Pressel, and the House bill sponsors, Reps. Bob Behning and Mike Speedy, to tell them why reliable, quality public transportation is important to you and the Central Indiana community.
Use the links below to call and/or write an email to Speaker Huston, Chairman Pressel, Rep. Behning, and Rep. Speedy to urge them to stop SB 141 from advancing in the House. By using the links below, you will be provided with the phone number and talking points for the call and a pre-written suggested message for the email.
Visit Transit Drives Indy’s website and read the letter signed by human service organizations within UWCI’s community partner network sent to Huston, Pressel, Behning, and Speedy on March 10 to learn more.
Thank you to everyone who took action to oppose Senate Bill 141 when it was in the Senate. We must keep up the pressure to defeat this bill in the House and prevent it from becoming law.
