Legislative Update - Week 2

While there are rallies going on today, it doesn't look like anything of real significance for bicycling is going to happen this session.

House Bill 4148 with a fee on studded tires looks liked it died in committee.

House Bill 4043 on reinstating suspended drivers licenses passed the House and is now in the Senate. I guess it's all about minors who try to buy alcohol and get their licenses suspended. Funny thing to prioritize just now - a bill to generate revenue on studded tires dies, but this is viable and important?

House Bill 4167 would increase the fines from $25 to $100 for kids who bike without helmets. Two work sessions and a hearing have been held. It seems to be still viable.
