State Rep. Diane Mitsch Bush pushing to keep Safe Routes to School grants alive 21.4.2014 Steamboat Pilot
State Rep. Diane Mitsch Bush, D-Steamboat Springs, is doing all she can to keep the Safe Routes to School grant alive in Routt County, including joining bipartisan forces on the House floor and, soon, the Senate floor. In mid-March, the House Transportation and Energy Committee overwhelmingly passed House Bill 1301, a measure to renew funding for the program. The dollars are administered to local communities through the Colorado Department of Transportation. Mitsch Bush said the Safe Routes to School program originally was federally funded. But when Congress made significant transportation cuts, the “alternative transportation” funding was all that was left, with no dollars set aside for Safe Routes to School. “This is a proven program that has really made improvements not just in the obvious ways — safer routes, trails, underpasses and intersections, trail connections, etc.,” Mitsch Bush said Friday. “It also has gotten parents much more involved in schools.

New Jersey Residents Want To Reduce Coastal Risks, But They Don't Want To Pay 18.4.2014 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
New Jersey residents support efforts to protect coastal communities from the hazards of storms and flooding, but they don't want to pay for them, a new research paper concludes from public opinion polling. The study by researchers at Rutgers University looks at polling that found a majority of New Jersey respondents support building and zoning changes that would help mitigate the effects of natural disasters. The polling showed 62.5 percent said they strongly agree that local governments should be allowed to "require housing in some areas to be built in ways highly resistant to natural disasters." Another 22 percent said they somewhat agree with that statement. The article will be published in the journal Risk Analysis, and was posted online this month . Sixty-one percent of respondents said they strongly agree that the federal and state governments should "identify the areas to not be developed" because they would provide natural buffers from storms.
