Legislative Update from VBF - 11 FebSenate Bill 1220, Following Too Closely, was voted out of the House Transportation Committee with a vote by the full House expected later this week. The identical House version, House Bill 1342, was voted out of the Senate Transportation Committee and a vote is also expected later this week.
See the full report from VBF from Bud Vye, including a call to action for NoVa cyclists. You can also see the status of all bike-related bills using VBF's bike bill spreadsheet:
"...we have only SB781 “Crossing the Double Yellow Line” and SB882 “the Dooring bill”, both of which will be heard in House Trans Sub2 next Monday. As usual, we can use the help of our Northern VA folks to ask Del. LeMunyon’s support and our Hampton Roads folks to ask Del. Taylor’s so we can get these bills out of this Sub Committee, which would appear to be our last major obstacle."
