Safe Passing Bill, SB 488 on its way to the Governor’s desk

This is really great news as this is the last step in the legislative process. All of our hard work and commitment to the process is really paying off. We're almost there!

From BikeTexas:

The final version of the Safe Passing Bill, SB 488, was passed Sunday by the Texas House. Monday, the Senate voted on it, and overwhelmingly voted to pass it.

That was the final step for the bill to complete in the Legislature. Now, it will be sent to Governor Perry, and we are cautiously optimistic that he will sign it into law. We will know the outcome by June 21, the last day the Governor can sign or veto bills.

Thank you all for your help and support so far. We will keep you updated on the bill's progress. To read the bill text, see the bill authors, or check the record votes, click here.
