- State Senator Loni Hancock has introduced a bill, SB 1061, which would allow the Bay Area Toll Authority to fund a bicycle-pedestrian-maintenance pathway on the West Span of the Bay Bridge. This is wonderful news for EBBC's long-term campaign to complete the pathway across entire SFOBB. Please send your personal or organizational support for the bill to Senator Hancock.

- The Federal Transportation Bill will be renewed this year, and this presents a significant opportunity to fund many projects crucial to bicyclists in the East Bay. EBBC will journey to Washington DC in March to lobby alongside other local coalitions in this regard, and we will keep you updated as to our progress.
