Hi Folks, we thought a few of you might want to weigh in on the bicycle discussion going on at the Statehouse right now. We just got this from the VT Bike Ped Coalition:
Rep. Jason Lorber (D-Burlington) is working with the VBPC to pass a bicycle parking bill (H.307). Rep. Lorber needs to hear from bicyclists so that he can demonstrate to fellow members of the House Institutions Committee that, indeed, good quality bicycle parking for employees and visitors should be provided at state buildings. The House Institutions Committee is expected to act very soon. An email message from you sent asap to Rep. Lorber is key to advancing this bill into law.
If you are a resident of Burlington, your message at this time would be especially helpful.
Please send a message to JLorber@leg.state.vt.us and include your full name and town of residence. List H.307 in the subject line and cc Nancy@VTBikePed.org A short message expressing your support for H.307 is sufficient. The actual bill can be found here: http://www.leg.state.vt.us/docs/2012/Bills/Intro/H-307.pdf
Please forward this message to other members of the bicycling community. Thank you.
