Harsdorf Bill Moves Forward

Senate Bill 137 (SB 137), legislation that I authored, received a 7-0 vote last week in the Senate Committee on Transportation. This legislation would enable the greater use of low-speed electric bicycles, which have proven to be a convenient and emissions-free mode of local transportation. This issue was brought to my attention by constituents that have utilized these bicycles, but experienced difficulty in using them given state regulations.

SB 137 would reduce bureaucratic roadblocks to using low-speed electric bicycles. The bill is now ready to be voted upon in the State Senate.
