- The Commuter Parity Act of 2013 would, among other things, increase the fringe benefit for bicycle commuting from $20 a month to $35 a month, specifically allow beneficiaries to use it to pay for bicycle sharing and allow employees to claim it AND/OR the transit benefit (currently it is either/or). It would also automatically adjust for inflation each year.
- Proposal to close a gap in the East Coast Greenway near Baltimore.
- Filibuster training: "An avid runner and cyclist, Davis was in good shape for the physical challenge of standing and talking for nearly half a day."
- The Non-Motorized Transportation Pilot Program Report is now available. This program provided $25 million to four communities to create a non-motorized transportation network. "The four pilot programs saw an average increase of 49 percent in the number of bicyclists ... between 2007 and 2010." This outpaced the national average from 2001 to 2008. Despite the increase in cycling, cycling fatalities did not go up. "the count increases over these 4 years came primarily from increased utilitarian bicycling and walking trips in each of the four communities." The health benefits alone were estimated to be about $7M per city.
