Tell Congress to Pass Commuter Benefit Parity in 2015!
Once again the Transit Benefit has been increased and decreased in the same year. Although, the Transit Benefit was retroactively increased for 2014, only, and even then in limited circumstances, it returned to the decreased level of $130/month for 2015. There has been a lot of talk, but little action! Commuters need action now to raise the current pre-tax monthly level of the transit portion of the Commuter Benefit to equal the level that is permitted for parking.
As the 2015 begins, and Congress returns to work, it is critical that you contact your Members of Congress and tell them to support passage of parity legislation as soon as possible. Ask them to sign up as co-sponsors of bills that are introduced. Securing the support of additional members of Congress is vital for passage of the legislation in this new session of Congress and cannot be done without your help.

We appreciate your support. A letter from you will make a difference (even if you have already sent one). 2015 brings an entire new session of Congress, complete with new representatives and new opportunities.
