Agenda and issues

We have some really pressing and important issues for you to discuss with your legislators April 23rd.  At the top of the list--a real chance to make a difference on the 144-mile section of Missouri's Rock Island Trail that has been under discussion since 2015:

The major 144-mile segment of the Rock Island Trail
The major 144-mile segment of the Rock Island Trail (red section on map) is currently under heavy discussion in Jefferson City, with two important bills introduced to support it. We will ask our Missouri leaders to support these bills at Capitol Day 2019

  • Bills sponsored by local Rep. David Wood and Sen. Mike Bernskoetter to support acceptance and adoption of the remaining 144-mile section of the Rock Island Trail 
     
  • Distracted driving and texting while driving
     
  • Missouri transportation funding - will it include a fair share for walking, bicycling, trails, and public transportation?
     
  • Bicycle & pedestrian safety issues

When you join us to ask our state legislators to support bicycling, walking, and trails in Missouri, it really does make a difference!

 

Working to create a world-class bicycle, pedestrian, and trails system in Missouri, to improve the safety of all road users, to build a powerful movement of people in support of bicycling, walking, and trails in Missouri, and to encourage more Missourians to walk and bicycle more often are the four primary goals of MoBikeFed's Vision for Bicycling and Walking in Missouri.

Bicycle, Pedestrian, and Trails Day at the Capitol is one of the most important ways we have of supporting ALL FOUR of those primary goals.  That is why we hope you will join us April 23rd for Capitol Day!

Your ongoing membership and generous financial support help turn our Vision into reality.
