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.
NOTE: At BikePortland, we love your comments. We love them so much that we devote many hours every week to read them and make sure they are productive, inclusive, and supportive (heck, sometimes we even fix your typos!). That doesn't mean you can't disagree with someone. It means you must do it with tact and respect. This is our business and we do not tolerate mean commenters who add nothing of value to the discussion. Unfortunately, we are not robots and we don't always catch everything. You can help by notifying us if you see inappropriate comments. Thanks! — Jonathan and Michael
