Complete Streets legislation

Dear Bicycling Friends of Tennessee,
Please see the Safe Routes to School National Partnership website regarding Complete Streets legislation and how you can support efforts to make roads safe and user-friendly for bicyclists and pedestrians. We approached Senator Lamar Alexander in early March asking him to co-sponsor the bill; however, Senator Alexander chose to not take on co-sponsorship. We are now asking Tennessee constituents and bicycling organizations to send letters to Senator Corker asking him to co-sponsor the legislation. Please send letters as individuals and as leaders of bicycling clubs and organizations. It would be helpful if you sent a copy of your letter to us at Walk/Bike Nashville to keep track of all constituent correspondence. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

How to get in touch with Senator Corker:

Thank you,
shannon hornsby
