At the same time, it sounds like the compromises he is supporting to get this bill through go too far.
He means well.

Nope, only specifically modified quads.

Done that.
Proposed section 16 language similar to what was passed by the Senate has been provide to multiple House of Representative members directly involved with the bill and directly to the Transportation Committee staff writing and re-writing the amendments.

Thanks for clearing up that first part. So non-plated bikes will be SOL with this bill? In other words, you don't gain the right to ride on roads that would be open to quads, but are subject to new penalties under this bill? Your lawmakers suck....

Good luck on getting this resolved.

The House of Representatives just adjourned for the night.

They will be back at it at 10am tomorrow.
If SB5366 is not passed by 5pm tommorrow it is toast.


Keep lighting them up!

Their asses should be on fire, as many times as I've written this session.

That all changed at 5pm.

According to legislative rules, the bill missed cut-off and is dead.

That is the likely outcome but there are technical ways it could be revived right up to when the Legislature adjournes 8-March.

This bill is not dead yet.

There is an amendment to HB2190 (transportation budget) that adds a fiscal element from 5366.

That way, 5366 is linked to the budget and by doing that kept alive until the end of the session on Thursday.

As of right now 5366 has been removed from the House floor calendar and is back with the House Rules Committee, but things can change quickly.

Thanks for the update Tod. Before I write to any legislators or senators (see, I read your comment to me!) what's the upside of passing this amended bill for two-wheeled, ORV recreationalists, with unplated bike? My understanding (probably wrong) is that it primarily benefits quad-riders. In short - why would it be a good idea for this bill to pass?

Zip, nothing positive for us two-wheeeled types.

Yep, plus some increased infraction penalties for riding where it is illegal.

Thanks. Think I'll save my lobbying efforts for something more relevant.

+1

I still find it to hard to get behind something like this that while it is not as injurious to the OHV community at large and full of holes as were opened with that striker amendment, it still seems quite narrow in it's focus; and has potential to affect single track trails if monies are diverted from OHV and Nova funds.

Tod,


Is it public record which legislator put forth the effort to get this glued to the Budget bill?
