Bicycle Commuter Tax Provision Passes House and Senate (10.03.08)
After seven long years, the bicycle commuter tax provision has finally passed both the House and Senate as part of the financial bailout package. President Bush said that he would quickly sign the $700 billion bailout bill. Thanks to all of you around the country who have contacted your congressional leaders over the years, and also thanks to Congressman Blumenauer and Senator Wyden for their continued insistence on having this benefit provided to bicycling Americans. Keep checking back here as we work on the implementation process.
The President has signed this bill, so now it’s time for each and every one of us to work with our employers to make this benefit a reality.
