Bill introduced to legalize lane splitting in Nevada

I'm a Californian and I've been splitting for 25 years, so riding between cars is natural to me - hard to refrain in other states. I wanted to share this so y'all NV riders can get involved and help push this through.

Assemblymen Richard “Skip” Daly (District 31), Richard Carrillo (District 18) and James Healey (District 35) have introduced AB236 which would legalize lane splitting in Nevada. The bill language is interesting because it's simple and smart. There's currently a bill - SB 350 - in the works ("on hold" for now) here in California that would codify the supposed gray areas around splitting - I hope the folks working on that take a look at this language:

A person may drive a motorcycle or moped between moving or stationary vehicles occupying adjacent traffic lanes and traveling in the same direction as the motorcycle or moped provided that the person drives in a cautious and prudent manner and the motorcycle or moped does not exceed a speed of 30 miles per hour while driving between such vehicles.
The bill page is here. I'll post updates as I have them under the Nevada lane splitting news tag of too.
