Your calls and emails in response to our Action Alert made a difference. Thanks to all of you and our advocacy partners for getting the word out! While we did not get the bill out of the Joint Committee on Transportation, we did get an extension until June 1st. Between now and then, we will continue working with the committee to move the bill forward.
We are particularly pleased that the bill will still be in play for the Massachusetts Bike/Walk Summit on Thursday, May 17th during Bay State Bike Week. The Summit gives us a great opportunity to educate legislators about the Vulnerable Road Users Bill and other legislation to protect bicyclists and pedestrians, and you can be a part of it by registering for the Summit.
