Act now to keep New York’s Recreation Trail program going strong

The new MAP-21 legislation contains one potential roadblock to continuing the Recreational Trails Program (RTP) at the State level: a provision allowing governors to opt out of the program if they notify the U.S. Secretary of Transportation of their decision no later than 30 days before the funds are apportioned.  Since the funds will be apportioned on October 1, any opt-out decisions must be sent to US DOT by September 1. 

Add your name to this letter (from IMBA) so we can encourage Governor Cuomo to keep funding the RTP funding!
