The voting is done and the results are in, and it’s a new day in Texas.
We’re headed into the 2015 legislative session with many unknowns. There will be new faces in both chambers come January, and many of those new legislators will need to be educated about people who walk and ride bikes. We’re unsure where the new Governor and Lt. Governor stand on the issues that are important to Texans who use active transportation.
One thing we are sure about: BikeTexas will be fighting for you at the legislature every day of the 2015 session to be sure that people who walk and ride bikes in Texas are well-represented. We are ready to take down any anti-bike bills that may come up, and we’re already working with our allies to prepare positive legislation that further protects our rights to Texas roads.
