John Paul Frerer Bicycle Safety Act Headed to Senate

Today, HB 1487, the John Paul Frerer Bicycle Safety Act cleared its last hurdle in the House and moved to the Senate. Yesterday, the bill passed overwhelmingly but was held on a motion to reconsider. We anticipated an effort to reconsider the bill and offer two amendments, but Chairman Warner McBridge (D-Batesville) moved to table the motion to reconsider, and the motion to table passed, sending the bill over to the Senate.

It was one of those times where I anticipated a big fight on the motion to reconsider, prepared throughout last night and this morning with all kinds of research, only to have it move on without any obstacle. But we'll definitely take it that way anytime.
