Explore St Pete Streets
to St Pete City Council
by the Frontier Group
St. Petersburg is already one of Florida’s best biking cities, and it’s about to get even better. A group of fifty residents, business owners, and St. Pete City Council Vice-Chair Lisa Wheeler-Bowman toured six miles of existing and proposed bike routes on a “BlockbyBlock: Minimum Grid” ride led by advocacy groups ShiftStPete and the Florida Consumer Action Network.
Meeting at Crescent Lake Park
On First Street North
FCAN and ShiftStPete led a 6-mile ride to explore existing and proposed bikeways in central St. Pete. City leaders, advocates, and ride participants discussed a “minimum grid” of trails and low-stress bike routes that would enable bicyclists to move about the city smoothly and safely, whether for transportation or recreation. Advocates and city leaders are urging the construction of new bikeways as part of a city “Complete Streets” initiative. More info on our Complete Streets page
FCAN Releases "Medical Debt Malpractice" -- a new report on aggressive tactics by medical debt collectors
The report “Medical Debt Malpractice,” by the USPIRG Education Fund and the Frontier Group. Released by FCAN, the report explores consumer complaints about medical debt, a major source of problems for consumers, since medical debt items on credit reports are often wrong or about the wrong consumer. The report also demonstrates the need to defend the CFPB from partisan and special interest attacks.

Our nation’s federal courts make rulings on virtually every issue that is important to Americans. Although most Americans are familiar with the Supreme Court, many are surprised to hear that more than 900 judges have lifetime appointments to serve on lower federal courts and hear thousands of times the number that the Supreme Court hears. And most of the time it’s these lower courts that have the final say. FCAN will be hosting events to talk about the courts at Tiger Bay, Poynter, and elsewhere in the coming months.
