Vulnerable users “bike bills” making progress in WA and NM; mixed results in MD

I thought the Washington bill hadn’t gotten out of committee. While both Cascade and Bicycle Alliance supported vulnerable user bills, many vehicular cycling bills opposed them feeling that the trade off of potentially mandatory bike lanes was ot worth the benefit. I’m not sure what all the features of these bills are but they should bear watching especially if they really are the same bill I thought had been killed. –Corrie

In Olympia, two vulnerable users bills, one in the House and in the Senate, have passed their respective chambers. Now lobbyists for Cascade Bicycle Club and Bicycle Alliance of Washington are pushing for at least one bill to win approval in the opposite chamber and go to the governor’s desk for a signature.
