I received a message from Mary Jane Shows, a Legislative Aide for Rep. Paul Seaton (R-Homer), that HB57 (Alaska Bike Bill) will be up for a hearing in the House Transportation Committee at 1 p.m. on Thursday, March 10
Friday, March 11. (EDITOR’S NOTE: The time on this hearing has changed from what previously was published. Please note the change.)
This is the second hearing before that committee, and the bill is early on the agenda so hopefully people won’t have to wait long to testify. The committee will vote on the bill, and if it passes it will move on to the House Finance Committee.
If you want to testify, contact your local Legislative Information Office to find out how to conference call into the hearing. If you have written testimony, ask your LIO staff how to make sure the committee members receive it in time for the hearing.
More information about the bill was posted last month on the Alaska Bicycle and Pedestrian Alliance website.
