ASLA Recognizes Positive Outcomes of Fiscal Cliff Deal
ASLA issued a statement last week commending the government’s work in averting the fiscal cliff. While no deal is perfect, it is important to acknowledge that our elected officials worked together to avoid fiscal disaster. The hard-won deal is an important step toward supporting our nation’s economic recovery. As discussion turns to spending cuts in the coming weeks, ASLA advocacy will work to ensure lawmakers understand the importance of investing in active transportation, green infrastructure, and other policies that create jobs, foster sustainable economic development, and create healthier lifestyles.
