A laid-off CTA bus driver wrote to urge CTA Tattler reader support of the Public Transportation Act of 2010. The bills pending in both house of Congress would provide $2 billion in emergency aid to transit systems for operating expenses needed
to restore service cuts.
A note from the driver:
I contacted SpeakerNancy Pelosi and asked her to usher the transit bills in Washington
DC to voting as soon as possible. Our families depend on it. Tell Congress to support H.R. 2746, Sherrod Brown Transit Bill, and the Mass Transit Preservation Act of 2010. They helped everyone else, now help transit workers!!! Let them know we are serious!
Here's Rep. Pelosi's email address.
