Complete Streets Bill Heats Up

In Albany, NY, a "complete streets" bill that would dictate that all new roads follow guidelines for bike and ped accessibility is gaining ground as it passes through the state Congress.

Noah Kazis reports on the new momentum:

"In early April, the bill cleared the Senate environmental conservation committee with bipartisan support; Queens Republican Frank Padavan joined all the committee's Democrats in voting yes. It now moves on to the finance committee, chaired by Brooklyn Democrat Carl Kruger. In the Assembly, the bill passed through the environmental conservation committee and is awaiting action by the ways and means committee, chaired by Upper Manhattan Democrat Denny Farrell."
