"New Congressional rules about how to spend the Highway Trust Fund could be a challenge for bike advocates."

The problem with spending HTF money on non-highway projects is it creates a great talking point for the automotovists: "Motorists are taxed to pay for cyclists and pedestrians." While this is true, the logical conclusion isn't: that motorists are overtaxed -- in fact, motorist taxes and fees pay for about half of highway spending, with general revenue -- income and sales taxes -- paying for the rest.
