|Please join us for an ALL MEMBERS Bus Coalition conference call this Monday, May, 21st at 4:30 PM EDT, 1:30 PM PDT.
This week, we expect the House to release its version of the FY19 Transportation, Housing Appropriations bill, which could provide additional funds for the Bus and Bus Facility program. If the bill details are available, we will review, provide analysis and highlight any advocacy efforts needed in the Senate (or more in the House if necessary).
In addition to FY19 Appropriations, we will discuss the recent allocation of the 2017 Bus and Bus Facility grant round. Ed and Joel met with FTA to learn more about how they made their decisions and how it could impact future rounds as well.
We will provide a quick summary of Ed’s recent trip to DC where he and Joel met with nearly 30 different offices advocating for additional bus money in FY19.
Lastly, we will discuss plans for the Bus Caucus and ideas for an event on Capitol Hill this summer.
Of course, we want to hear from you as well! So plan to join us on the call Monday, May 21st at the following number and use the conference ID to join.
