Via Omaha Bikes – LB1030:
We were thrilled to learn that Sen. Tom Hansen from North Platte had introduced a bill in the Nebraska Legislature that would require motorists to give at least 3 feet of space when passing cyclists, pedestrians, and those operating motorized wheelchairs on the road. An impressive group of cyclists from Omaha and Lincoln came together on February 6 to testify in favor of the bill in front of the Transportation Committee.
The good news: we learned late this week that the Transportation Committee voted to place this bill on file for consideration of the full legislature. The bad news: LB1030 has not been tagged as a priority bill.
