VICTORY: New York Restores Funding for Recreational Trail

rec trail 2

When budgetary concerns in the state of New York threatened funds for the proposed Catskill Mountain Rail Trail, MoveOn member Eve Fox started two¬†MoveOn Petitions¬†asking New York legislators to restore the funding. The petitions garnered nearly 1,500 signatures. Thanks to the large show of public support, the $2 million in funding for the rail trail was restored in New York’s 2013 budget, and plans to construct the trail are moving ahead at the county level.
