Urge Your Governor to Fully Fund RTP!

You Acted and Congress Responded by Saving RTP. Now Weigh-In with Your Governor to Ensure that the RTP is Protected in your State.

As you know, the RTP faced elimination in the recent transportation reauthorization showdown in Congress, but thanks to the commitment of key U.S. Senators, including Senators Klobuchar (D-MN), Risch (R-ID), Shaheen (D-NH) and Burr (R-NC) along with long-standing champions in the House of Representatives including Representatives Petri (R-WI) and Rahall (D-WV), the RTP was fully funded by the legislation that ultimately became law.

There was one necessary compromise that was made to ensure that full funding is available for RTP: Governors can choose to opt their state out of the Recreational Trails Program. While we anticipate that the overwhelming majority of states will elect to continue to fully fund the RTP we must do our part to ensure that all 50 Governors hear from as many RTP advocates as possible.
