Complete Streets is Filed in the Legislature!

737BikeHouston has received an update on the 2013 Complete Streets Bill from our friends at BikeTexas.

The 2013 Complete Streets bill has been filed in the legislature! The bill has a bipartisan range of authors in each chamber. After the bill ran out of time in 2011, it was decided to use the language for the bills that was negotiated in committee in 2011 to accelerate the bills’ progress through the legislature.

Click on the bill numbers below for more details:
SB 565, authored by Senators Ellis and Deuell, and coauthored by Senators Davis, Lucio, Rodríguez, and Watson. HB 1102, authored by Representatives Harper-Brown, Morrison, Mando Martinez, Lucio III, and Keffer.

Many thanks to the bill authors for their support! Stay tuned for Action Alerts, to be sent out when a phone call or email from you can help push this bill through the legislature. Learn more about Complete Streets here.

Sincerely,
Robin Stallings
Executive Director, BikeTexas
