URGENT ADVOCACY ALERT: Bicycling under attack in Missouri
House - you can help

[URGENT ADVOCACY ALERT - DISTRIBUTE WIDELY THROUGH APRIL 10TH 2014]

This week a Missouri representative introduced a
Bicycle Ban bill. Another representative
proposed an amendment to eliminate bicycling from
the $8 billion Missouri Transportation Funding proposal.

With your help, we can stop both.

A key vote will be held Monday or Tuesday, so we
need you to act now! Two easy steps:

1.
<http://www.senate.mo.gov/LegisLookup/default.aspx>Look
up your Missouri State Representative's contact information here.

2. Email and call your State Representative with this simple message:
"I support including bicycling in HJR 68, the
transportation funding bill, and I urge you to
vote against Rep. Paul Curtman's amendment
(<http://www.house.mo.gov/billtracking/bills141/amendpdf/5302H02.01F.pdf>
5302H02.01F) to remove bicycling from HJR 68. I
urge you to oppose Rep. Korman's HB 2279 to ban
bicycles from certain state highways."
Please be polite and persuasive when you call or
email--we need friends in the Missouri House on these issues!

And please consider attending our
<http://mobikefed.org/capitolday>annual Capitol
Day Monday April 7th and talk personally with
your legislators about this issue. That personal
contact makes a huge difference.

HELP US START A TWITTERSTORM AND SOCIAL MEDIA BROUHAHA
Help us spread the word on social media that
Missouri bicyclists are not happy about this
treatment. We expect and demand better from our
representatives. Legislators are tuned into this.

Please use hashtag #SupportMOBiking

Suggested tweets & Facebook posts, advocacy alert
and links to more information about the bills, amendments, etc:
