The bill (House Congressional Resolution 305, full text here) seeks to buoy the efforts of bike advocates nationwide and “recognize the importance of bicycling in transportation and recreation.”
Last week, the bill passed out of the House Transportation & Infrastructure Committee.
According to Blumenauer staffer Meeky Blizzard, the bill made it to the floor of the House this morning where it was debated by several lawmakers. Blizzard says two House members made favorable comments (one Republican, one Democrat) about the resolution before the session concluded.
Unfortunately, a vote on the bill was postponed due to lack of a quorum present. A vote on the bill could come as early as tomorrow. Stay tuned for updates.
