Many thanks to all of you who supported Senate Bill 488 which was created to provide protection to vunerable road users (road workers, horse riders, tow truck operators, runners, walkers and folks riding their bikes) in the State of Texas. This important bill passed the legislature by a wide margin, across both party lines.
Smooth sailing right up to Gov Rick Perry's desk. THEN MR. PERRY SAW IT UPON HIMSELF TO VETO SB 488! Without any plausible explanation.....
Well that was his mistake and come election time things will take care of itself.
In the meantime please take a few seconds of your time to sign the attached petition that will help underscore the need for this important piece of legislation:
