Introducing the Streetsblog Network

netgrab2.jpgWe've
just launched our shiny new transportation-policy blog network, and
we're pretty darn excited. You can find out why by clicking here.

Streetsblog Network (usa.streetsblog.org)
brings together more than 100 blogs from 31 states — and counting. Its
purpose is twofold: to create a place where people who blog on smart
growth, livable streets and sustainable transportation issues can come
together and learn from each other. And to provide a clearinghouse for
information related to the transportation bill, or "TEA," that directs
the spending of hundreds of billions of federal dollars. The next such
bill is set to come up for reauthorization in 2009.

Federal transportation policy has long been a Beltway
insider’s game, one where the highway lobby held most of the cards.
This time, a coalition of organizations called Transportation for America has come together with the aim of taking the next TEA bill in a different direction.

We'll be using the Streetsblog Network site to give readers
and bloggers opportunities for action on the TEA bill, information
about upcoming committee hearings — pretty much all the news on this
legislation that we can get our hands on.

Think of it as a community that gets things done.
