Lynne will be meeting with area politicians including John Boehner, Steve Chabot, Sherrod Brown, and Rob Portman to discuss transportation initiatives including complete streets, safe routes to schools, and recreational walks. Specifically discussing the following legislation: In the House: H.R. 2468 the Safe Streets Act; In the Senate: S. 2004; and in the House: H.R. 3978 New Opportunities.
