Thank you to all of you who emailed Governor Newsom and asked him to sign the Complete Streets Bill! Now, we’re joining California Bicycle Coalition and safe streets partners in ramping up the pressure to pass this bill for safer biking and walking on local streets that Caltrans controls.
Caltrans is too often an obstacle when local communities try to create livable streets. Please call Gov. Newsom and ask him to sign SB 127, the Complete Streets for Active Living Bill. Call (916) 445-2841 right now!
State your name, zip code, and that you are calling to urge the governor to support SB 127. Here are some additional talking points: • SB 127 is the most-cost effective way to make our streets safer. • SB 127 is a sensible law that will require Caltrans to follow its own Complete Streets policies. • If you are serious about tackling climate change, we have to make it easier and safer to bike, walk, and take transit. SB 127 will do all that.
Caltrans is too often an obstacle when local communities try to create livable streets. Tell Governor Newsom to sign SB 127 for safer streets. Call him at (916) 445-2841 now.
P.S. Every call makes a difference. Please call Governor Newsom now at (916) 445-2841.
