Glad to hear your blood is beginning to boil! We are facing an uphill fight. But we can win. Back in 2003 our primary federal funding was threatened and we won on the floor of the House of Representatives 320-90.

To prevail this time, we will need to deploy many forms of advocacy: (1) letters, emails and phone calls; (2) visits to the Hill during Bike Summit; (3) visits to Members of Congress in their district; (4) showing up at Congressional town hall meetings in mass; (5) hosting "Show Congress" events on trails to highlight what funding has accomplished; and last but not least(6) rabble rousing on talk radio.

If we feel that we're not getting sufficient traction with these traditional methods, we will have to give serious consideration to "guerilla advocacy."
