Legislative Update 3-14-2013

We are past the half way point; now the House and Senate begin work on the bills that made it out of their respective chambers.

Here is the nickel tour:

Helmet reform legislation is effectively dead for this year.  Senator Benton is still dedicated to working the issue, but most likely that will be during interim.

SHB 1334 (Conversion Kits on motorcycles) and SHB 1379 (Private motorcycle skills education programs) are being heard in the Senate Transportation Committee today.

SB 5141 (Traffic Signals), SB 5142 (Motorcycles in Transportation Planning), SB 5263 (Motorcycles Passing), and SSB 5274 Private motorcycle skills education programs) are all scheduled for a hearing in House Transportation on the 19th.

It is not too soon to begins calling your representatives and ask that they support all of these good bills.

Until next time,

Ride safely and legislate well,
