State and federal relations for better bicycling

What happens in “The Other Washington” impacts bicycling in many ways across Washington State. Whether for funding a trail or passing stronger laws to improve safety, Cascade alerts local advocates, agency staff and elected officials to issues that matter when making federal policy and investments. In addition to working directly with Washington State’s federal delegation, Cascade works with other organizational partners like the League of American Bicyclists, Rails to Trails Conservancy, and Safe Routes to School National Partnership to improve federal policy and funding for bicycling.

On the state level, Cascade works with its partner, Washington Bikes, which leads lobbying and policy development efforts in the Washington State Legislature to grow state transportation and budget investments and pass state legislation to make it safer and easier to get around by bike.
