Statement on Board of Ethics and Government Accountability Finding
Recently, WABA received a letter of determination from the District of Columbia Board of Ethics and Government Accountability (BEGA) finding that WABA failed to register as a DC lobbyist from 2018 to 2020. We respectfully disagree with the BEGA ruling that WABA was required to register as a DC lobbyist during that time and are considering our options in response to it. Moving forward, WABA will continue our work as a charitable, civic organization empowering people to ride bikes, build connections, and transform places. We envision a just and sustainable transportation system where walking, biking, and transit are the best ways to get around.
