If you're in VA and don't pay Metro fare, it's a ticket. In DC, it's possible jail time and a criminal record. . Thanks for advancing the Fare Evasion Decriminalization Act.

that a parking violation=ticket, but accessing Metro without paying fare can land you in jail & a criminal record. Will you vote in support of the the Fare Evasion Decriminalization Act??

The Trump administration proposes to dramatically limit the right to demonstrate near the White House and on the National Mall, including in ways that would violate court orders that have stood for decades. The public has until 10/15 to comment.
