Legislative Alert 4-10-13

Good morning, Campers, it’s getting down to “crunch” time.

We have cleared committee cutoff, which means that any bill that did not make it out is effectively dead.

The good news is that we still have 4 bills still in play.

SB 5141 (Traffic Signals), SB 5142 (Motorcycles in Transportation Planning), SB 5263 (Motorcycles Passing), and SSB 5274 Private motorcycle skills education programs) all passed House Transportation.  This means that they have been sent back to Rules to be able to go to the floor for debate and passage.

It is definitely time to start calling your representatives and ask that they support all of these good bills.  Insist that they get to the floor for action as soon as possible.  Buzz is that House leadership especially wants the traffic signal bill to move.

If you don’t know yet who your representatives are, follow this link.

Until next time,

Ride safely and legislate well,
