- This Sunday, you can bike or walk the newest section of the ICC and raise money for Special Olympics Maryland at the same time. As I recall, they did the same thing with the section of the ICC opened earlier this year.
- With the transit benefit set to expire, will this be the year that non-drivers will be able to cash-out of parking? (probably not). "States like California have tried this, and, as it turns out, the program really does lead to fewer people driving work.

- In a rare sign of agreement between the parties, the US House and Senate unanimously passed the Ski Area Recereational Opportunity Enhancement Act which makes "it easier for ski resorts on federal land to receive permits for activities other than skiing. It is expected to boost mountain economies in the summer with the expansion of bike trails, Frisbee golf courses, zip-lines, rope courses and more." Enjoy mountain bikers - it looks like we're counting on you to singlehandedly put America back to work.
