HB 192 (5-Feet To Pass Bicycles Bill) is now on the Senate floor calendar for its final vote in the New Mexico State Legislature. If approved by the full Senate, HB 192 goes to the Governor’s desk for her signature.
So we now need you to contact your State Senator and ask for their support for this Bill. This link will take you to a webpage that will allow you to easily input your street address to find your Senator and send an email of support:
So far we’ve won five of the six votes needed to move HB 192 through the legislature. This full Senate vote is the most challenging as the Senate is a more conservative political body than the State House. It is going to be tight and we absolutely need your help.
Please feel free to circulate this email and link to others and help get the word out. The Senate vote will take place during the week beginning Monday, March 11, and will depend on how quickly the Bills in front of HB 192 are debated and voted on. The legislative session ends at 12:00 Noon on Saturday, March 16.
The support from the bicycling community in New Mexico for this Bill has been tremendous and we need your help one more time.
Please pass this on to your friends and neighbors who may be willing to help.
