Pre-session filings are now on the Legislature's website and here's a list of bills relating to bicycles and a few on more general transportation issues. This is just a first run, and I'm sure we'll identify more in the next week. Hopefully we'll get word on which bills are dead on arrival and which might get further along. So no analysis for the moment. Two of the more interesting bills would ban headphones and giving your 6 year old a ride on your bike or a trailer.
