Legislative Update and Action Alert 2-10-2014

Attention all hands, it’s action time.  The legislature is approaching the first major cutoff date.  Any bill that does not clear a policy committee by the 11th will be dead.  the good news is that the Traffic signal bills are still in play.  The Senate passed SB 5141 (Traffic Signals) today, so it goes to the House.  The House version, HB 1238 is eligible to go to the House floor

Most pressing is  the Senate bill SB 5141, which will be referred to the House Transportation Committee tomorrow.  I will be meeting with the committee chair on Wednesday to request that SB 5141 gets scheduled for a hearing as soon as possible.

All riders need to contact both of their House members immediately and ask for their continued support for immediate action on  SB 5141 and HB 1238.  The sooner they hear from us the better.  Let’s get this traffic signal issue behind us.

Until next time,

Ride safely and legislate well,
