Legislative Update 3-10-2014: Heading to the Governor

Dateline 17:30   Hot off the presses!   After three meetings with the leadership of House Transportation today, as well as numerous meetings with senior leadership on both sides of the aisle, I receive assurances that the House would recede from their amendment.

Within hours SB 5141 (Traffic Signals) passed the House on a 91-7 vote.  The general consensus was that it was more important to get the bill to final passage than to add any “clarification” that might have been desired by House members.

A hearty “well done” to all the riders who kept in touch with their legislators to bring this through both houses.

Next stop, the Governor’s office,

Ride safely and legislate well,

“Texas” Larry
