Three foot passing bill update

The Senate version of the three foot passing bill, SB 566, passed the full Senate by a vote of 40-0. The bill now crosses over to the House Transportation Committee for consideration the week of 2/15.

According to the 2/3/10 update from Virginia Bicycling Federation, the Virginia House Transportation Sub-Committee delayed discussion of the House version of the three foot passing bill, HB 1048, until Wednesday, Feb. 10. If you haven't contacted a sub-committee member, please do so now. Also from VBF, see their Talking Points on HB 1048/SB 566, the two three-feet to pass bills.

Since he is the only delegate on the House Transportation Sub-Committee from Northern Virginia, Fairfax cyclists should contact Delegate Thomas Rust, 86th District (Herndon, Sterling Park, Oak Hill), to ask for his support for HB 1048;, 804-698-1086.
