Quick Update on LB39

Unfortunately, it appears my post of a week ago was prescient: LB39 is listed as “indefinitely postponed.” I read that as dead. The committee chose to put the fear of being the “only state with such a requirement” over the safety of people who bike. Disappointed as I am, I do wish to thank Senator Kolowski for his forward thinking and leadership in putting this bill forward.

So what now? We need to get behind LB641 which contains the same crosswalk  provisions that were in LB39. Write your senators to urge them to move the bill out of committee. Once on the floor, perhaps it can be amended to include other safety measures.
