We are very pleased to report that the Senate Judiciary Committee has voted unanimously in favor of SB 123, 124, and 170, our 5-foot safe passing and driver's education improvement bills. Companion bills 580 and 581, which would strengthen penalties for distracted drivers, also passed unanimously. The bills have been referred for a vote on the Senate floor.
We would like to thank Senators O'Brien and Knezek for sponsoring this legislation and the Judiciary Committee for their attention and support for this matter.
Most importantly, we would like to thank all the individuals and organizations who shared their emotional testimony, sent letters of support, attended the hearing, or otherwise supported this package of legislation.
Our work is far from done. We will continue to fight to get these bills signed into law; we hope you will fight alongside us. Support from our members and donors help to ensure that we are able to work hard to advance this legislation. We hope you will renew your support and keep us moving forward by making sure your membership is up to date or by making a donation.
Thank you for your continued support!
