PeopleForBikes, League to hold webinars on election fallout

Published November 9, 2018

BOULDER, Colo., and WASHINGTON, D.C. (BRAIN) — PeopleForBikes and the League of American Cyclists will hold separate webinars next week addressing the midterm elections' effects on cycling.

At 5 p.m. ET on Tuesday, Nov. 13, the League will host "What the Election Results Mean for Bicycle and Walking." The 30-minute webinar will cover who the new and returning allies are for cycling and will include a synopsis of election results and active transportation issues by Caron Whitaker, the League's vice president of government relations. Interested listeners can register online.

At 11 a.m. ET on Friday, Nov. 16, PeopleForBikes will host "The Votes Are In. What Does the Election Mean for the Bicycle Industry?" In the hourlong webinar, PFB policy experts will review election outcomes, including:

  • How the next Congress will function following shifts in the House and Senate.
  • Wins and losses for bike infrastructure funding — including the defeat of California's Proposition 6, which sought to repeal the state's gas tax increase.
  • The changing makeup of state legislatures and governors' mansions.
