Vulnerable user bill dies without Senate vote

Tuesday, February 16, was the cutoff for bills to be passed out of their house of origin.  SB 5838 never made it to a vote of the full Senate.  It looks like next year Cascade Bicycle Club, the Bicycle Alliance of Washington and concerned roadway users will have to take it up again.

On a better note, SB 6302, a bill that would have violated federal funding for the I-90 floating bridge by prohibiting light or other fixed rail transit across it, died in committee this year.
