Support for New Bicycling Tax Benefits – As of last week, a new electric bicycle tax credit and a bike commuter benefit came one step closer to reality in the US. But People for Bikes needs help to keep these new bike-friendly policies moving through the Washington, DC legislative process. They are asking all US cyclists to help empower their national elected officials to prioritize bikes as part of the solution for the climate crisis, mobility equity, public health, and economic growth.
A committee in the U.S. House of Representatives approved these massive new investments in bike incentives, so now People for Bikes says they urgently need help to build support in Congress. To voice your support, People for Bikes has prepped a letter you can send to your member of Congress (here), asking them to help keep the electric bicycle tax credit and bike commuter moving forward.
