BABC and CBC encourage the investment of Cap-And-Trade revenues in non-motorized infrastructure

The Bay Area Bicycle Coalition has joined the California Bicycle Coalition in encouraging the Economic Allowance Advisory Committee (EAAC) to allow investment of the allowances being considered in discussions of a Cap-And-Trade system for California.  The committee is already recommending investing allowances in transportation planning to support Sustainable Community Strategies, which will help encourage biking and walking.  Our recommendation to the EAAC is to explicitly add non-motorized infrastructure as an eligible investment so that we can implement the sustainable community strategies they are already supporting. You can learn more about the EAAC and the Cap-And-Trade process being designed as part of AB32 at: http://www.climatechange.ca.gov/eaac/
