Electric Bicycles Legislation Passes Assembly

The State Assembly on January 20 passed on a voice vote Senate Bill 137, which allows the use of low-speed electric bicycles. This legislation, which I introduced at the request of constituents, is intended to clarify the ability of licensed drivers to utilize low-speed electric bicycles as a mode of transportation. SB 137 previously passed the State Senate on May 13 and now must be signed by the Governor before becoming law.
